London City concrete

A spark of inspiration from photographers Richard Cooper-Knight and Richard Guest led me to take a photographic walk around a London landmark previously uncharted by my camera.

The pair captured London’s Barbican in one of their regular collaborations, distilling its essence into an intriguing set of photographs. It’s a concrete housing estate with a high-rise element which was built in the 1960s and 70s. It lies in the heart of the city and is a prestigious address.

The Barbican is something of a maze and on the face of it far from beautiful. But as the two Richards found, it’s bristling with lines, curves and angles. Quite Unmissable for the photographer.
