This is an early photograph taken in 2010 of the Brutalist Birmingham Library designed by John Madin before it was destroyed. In October 1988 BBC documentary A Vision of Britain, the HRH Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales (and future King of Britain) said the 1974 brutalist library looked like "a place where books are incinerated, not kept".
I have taken this by using a SLR Camera in Black and White and increased the size Digitally, and taken at swerved angle to fill the frame, fully with the Building. Upon reflection, looking at the photograph, the top resembles a Book, with thick Brutalist pages, ironically which has been destroyed. Loved or Hated, you decide!
