One Redcliff Street.

One Redcliff Street (formally known as the Robinson Building) was built in 1964, and was the headquarters of a packaging manufacturer. At the time, there was a certain height that a building could be and this exceeded it at 100m tall. In true Brutalist style, the block building sits uncomfortably next to the Church of St Thomas. This of course caused a bit of a stir when first built, as it does not seem to fit too well into its surroundings.

I am interested in the history of this place, but also how it is responded to now. I wanted to convey a sense of confusion through my work, as this building has always seemed to be a bit of an eyesore, and difficult to represent through photography. This is why I chose to photograph it from a variety of different perspectives around Bristol. The combination of landscape images with more cropped, abstract images were to further emphasise this idea of confusion.
