Brutal Outer London (Hardcover)
From the photographer behind the bestselling, iconic photo book Brutal London.
London is a large, dispersed megacity, and where Brutal London focused on inner London, this new book from the acclaimed photographer Simon Phipps concentrates on the further reaches; the suburbs and outer residential regions and hubs.
From Zone 3 out to the M25, Thamesmead to Richmond and Croydon, this is a thorough, evocative and attentive study of some of the major achievements of post-war architecture.
