Welcome to "The Brutalist"

My diary as I attempt to photograph as many Brutalist buildings as possible as I work towards the ARPS distinction with the Royal Photographic Society
The National Theatre. London

…and so it begins

I was awarded my LRPS (Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society) back in March 2016 and was keen to move onto the next level – the ARPS (Associateship of the Royal Photographic Society), but, what with one thing and another I stalled and haven’t progressed this…until now.

The number one priority for doing the Associateship (and the Fellowship which comes after the ARPS) is coming up with a subject and I’d ummed and ahhed for some time trying to come up with something.

Earlier this year I became pretty interested in Modernism, The Bauhaus Movement and Constructivism. It was a pretty natural progression to look at Brutalism.

I had, of course, photographed some Brutalist architecture previously, and some of that is shown on this page. I hope that I will be able to demonstrate some progress in my shooting of Brutalist (and other) structures as this project progresses.

I have put together some resources for me to easily find Brutalist architecture which I will share in due course for anyone else that’s interested in the subject. Much of the information has been gleanned from a number of sources, but I must give credit to the #sosbrutalism web site that has been invaluable so far.

Included here is a small collection of shots of the National Theatre on the South Bank in London.
