Brutal London by Simon Phipps.

In response to a growing interest in London's less glamorous architectural history, Simon Phipps's Brutal London offers a photographic exploration of the city's postwar modernist architecture.

In his carefully considered photographs of Brutalist architecture, Simon Phipps inspires the viewer to revisit and reimagine the cityscape, revealing familiar and unfamiliar buildings in a fresh and evocative way. The photographer divides the city into geographical sections, allowing the viewer to dip in and out of the book at their leisure.

Brutal London is the perfect book for those interested in London's modernist architectural history or for budding urban explorers in search of the secret sides of the city.

Simon Phipps is a fine art photographer based in London, and has spent over 15 years documenting and photographing Brutalist architecture across the UK. His role in a renewed interest in Brutalism has been considerable, with his photographs also featuring in the Brutalist London Map.
