Reykjavik 2017

I had the pleasure to visit Reykjavik, Iceland in February 2017. It's an incredible, and unique place with gorgeous landscapes. Here a few of my favourite pictures from the trip.

 

A Visit to The Barbican- April 2016

I recently went  to the Barbican to see the Photography exhibition 'Strange and Familiar' - an excellent show exhibiting international photographer's pictures of British culture from around the 60's to the present day.

Armed with my own camera, I took the opportunity to wander the Barbican, capturing more beautiful, huge concrete structures. I saw recently that the rough surface to all the walls was done using hand-held drills, that's a huge amount of work!

 

The Exterior / Interior of Brunswick Shopping Centre

Furthering my passion for Brutalist Architecture and photography, I embarked on a trip to the Brunswick Shopping Centre, London. It's a very unique structure, providing shopping and restaurants on the ground floor, and residential properties above. I managed to access the residential portion of the buildings, and found it's blend of interior and exterior to be very striking: The enormous halls are covered, but huge openings make them exposed to the elements.

On the way to the Brunswick shopping centre I also came across SOAS, which also features some huge, concrete monolithic architecture.

This was one of the first times I field-tested my new camera too! The Panasonic G7 shoots incredibly sharp in comparison to my old Camera. Really impressed with it so far!

More Brutalism: Aylesbury

Went for a local exploration to capture some images of the Aylesbury estate in south east London. The nearby Heygate estate has now been knocked down to make way for new builds, and I fear it's only a matter of time before these suffer the same fate.

Really enjoyed taking these pictures, and I was able to benefit from a new lens: The Tamron 24-70mm f2.8. Many of the lenses I have are manual focus, so it's a real treat to snap away quickly with a fast auto-focus lens.
