There have been many creative tributes to London’s iconic Brutalist buildings in recent years. Once dismissed as ugly, the concrete towers and blocks of the capital are enjoying something of a renaissance and artists, designers and photographers are amongst those who now celebrate them.

Ian Campo is one of the latest to capture the once-unpopular architectural style, which thrived between the mid-1950s through to the 1970s. A photographer and writer currently based in New York City, he shoots with a Nikon D5200 and is interested in urban photography, especially architecture.

After recently discovering and falling in love with Brutalism, he used his first-ever trip to London as an excuse to visit its famed concrete structures. The resulting series features four of the most iconic buildings – Trellick Tower, National Theatre, Rowley Way/Alexandra Road Estate, and the Barbican, and is a must-view for fans of dramatic architecture.

The combination of a black and white colour palette and the bold, clean lines of the buildings presents the structures in their very best form. Discover more at instagram.com/iseemaps / vsco.co/spmac.
