Architectural Photography of the Barbican, London

The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London.

One of my favourite pieces of architecture in London, a place undeniably rich in fantastic architecture. There is just something about the Barbican… I enjoyed it as an architect, over the years I have photographed its architecture many times, made short films about it, animated strange perverted robots jumping out of it, given it lashing serrated tongues and turned it’s balconies into a saw. Now that I am a full-time architectural photographer, it is interesting to return to it and respond to it in a different way.

I used a large format camera, the Toyo VX125b, Rodenstock 135mm f 5.6 Apo-Sironar-S, Schneider 72mm f/5.6 Super-Angulon XL, Rodenstock 210mm f 5.6 Apo-Sironar-S lenses. Film was Fomapan 100, self-developed in Ilfosol.
