The New Brutalism - Shaun Hand & Tom Hicks
21st Century Britain. A Brutal, uncaring place marching headlong into fascism? The photographs of Tom Hicks capture the everyday scenes of urban decay, the sort of deterioration we’ve watched as it worsens year in, year out, the familiar, yet uncared for.
The poetry of Shaun Hand provide companion pieces to these visual images; verbal images of a society in decay. We’ve watched it worsen year in, year out, the familiar, yet uncared for. This is the New Brutalism, a mix of stark realism and dark humour and profound statement from the collaboration between poet and photographer.
