A new perspective

These unique photographs taken by Christian Black of this famous 1930s building express many of the forms that Wells Coates saw in his early designs.  It is a credit to this man that, nearly eighty years later, people are still able to express themselves through his ideas of “Modernism” through Embassy Court.

Embassy Court has recently undergone a five million pound restoration and Christian has managed to capture the style and beauty of this classic Brighton building with his unique photographic talent.  The main entrance stands out as the ‘jewel in the crown’ with its beautiful moulded glass and steel work and it is a credit to this unique building.

Christian Black is originally from Chichester and is a world renowned photographer in the world of ‘kite surfing’.  His assignments have taken him all over the world where he continues to seek new dimensions to add to his special brand of photography in the world of extreme sports. As a local person he intends to add further assignments to his Brighton portfolio and hopefully we shall see the benefit of those on the site in the future.

  • Great shots!  Shows the old girl in all her glory.  I hope someone on the committee of English Heritage uses them for the historical record.
