Brutalist Encounters

Marietta Varga is a Hungarian photographer based in London. With a practice based upon spatial context, symbolism and affective colour schemes, she offers intimate and uncanny compositions that follow a clean and simplistic aesthetic, contrasted with a detailed sense of the surreal.

The Raw Hill series utilises the brutalist architecture of London-based structures, such as the Barbican estate, as a playground through which to explore institutionalisation and post-war culture.

Building upon the sprawling, grey concrete, the images evoke a sense of the monumental reduced through poetic bathos.
