Today I am delighted to be a guest contributor on Lula Alvarez’s blog, On Botanical Photography. We have jointly produced a photo-essay on on the Barbican in London, Lula taking the wonderful photographs of this modernist fortress, with me supplying the accompanying text. For both of us, the Barbican is one of the most fascinating sites in the capital.
Here’s a photo I took last month from the London Eye, showing the three Barbican towers amidst the endearing jumble of architecture that makes up the City of London. For more on the Barbican’s remarkable intertwining of Brutalist architecture and lush landscapes, have a look at Lula’s blog.
