Brutal North

Post-War Modernist Architecture in the North of England

The follow-up to Brutal London, Brutal North is a collection of unique and evocative photography by Simon Phipps. The award-winning photographer turns his lens to famous and lesser-known examples of Brutalist architecture across Great Britain’s northern region. It serves as an introduction to buildings the reader may see every day, an invitation to look differently, a challenge to look up afresh, or to seek out celebrated Brutalism across the country.

Praise for Concrete Poetry: ‘Mr Phipps follows up on his ace books on Brutalism with this one on post-war Modernist public art in the UK – and it’s an absolute beauty that’ll get you going for a look about at angular concrete lumps in squares. A masterclass in book design too.’ Simon Armstrong, Tate | ‘Simon’s black and white images of Brutalist and post-war buildings in the UK are defined by their striking compositions in which the raw architectural forms of his subjects are laid bare.’ The Modern House
