This London-based architectural photographer manages to catch a lot of light for a place that has a notorious reputation for being grey (very much like Birmingham). His photographs of buildings at twilight are particularly beautiful.
“Simon Kennedy’s photographs of the Heygate Estate prompt us to contemplate not the failure of modernism, but the failure of the failure of modernism, and the possibilities for reclaiming a mode of Utopian urban thinking. In doing so they provide a visual elaboration of a prominent theme in contemporary architectural debate. At a time of acute shortage of affordable housing, the photographs make us question the validity of the decision by Southwark Council to demolish these buildings—are they essentially and irretrievably a failure?” www.simonkennedy.net
These are issues that have faced Brutalist buildings in Birmingham, therefore following Kennedy’s photography style may be appropriate.
