Yep, more Brutalism today, and I can't stop going on about the Barbican! Another Christmas present too...

Now I went on my own little photo walk around the Barbican (nearly a year ago now, blimey) which you can see some of here, but no images I can take come close to the beautiful photographs taken by Alan Ainsworth for his book The Barbican: Architecture and Light. The book contains page after page of stunning black and white photographs of the Barbican with a focus on the play of light and shadow.

As well as the photographs the book contains discussions of the architects' vision for the centre alongside an essay on it's planning and more. I'm inspired to head back with the 35mm camera to take some more shots looking at it from a different perspective.
