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.
