A Modernist Dream / by Alex Simpson

This weekend saw myself and my talented photographer friend Chris Baker friend take on a new personal project in the form of a mini doc centered around modernist 1930's architect Wells Coates.

The project came to fruition when a few months ago Chris (a fan of both Wells and modernism) ventured to two of Coates's iconic buildings, the Isokon in Hampstead London and Embassy Court in Brighton, to embark on a beautiful stills project featuring both the buildings and the residents within as the star of the show.

After meeting and shooting some of the colourful characters it was decided that there was more than enough content for a lovely piece of moving image to be made and we set about producing our first short documentary.

Watch this space for the final edited piece.
