Feed is a new all day restaurant and bar in Pudsey, serving everything from coffee to cocktails owned by award-winning restauranteur Luke Downing and fronted by one of the city’s upcoming and most controversial chefs, Jonathan Hawthorne.
A couple of weeks ago I was invited down to a preview evening to shoot some food photography for their fantastic dishes ahead of their big launch party. Whilst the menu changes all the time the preview menu had some amazing looking dishes (Cheeseburger spring rolls anyone?). I have to say, the food looked absolutely stunning so it was a pleasure to shoot.
The team down there are great so if you’re looking for something a bit special you should check them out. I’m looking forward to seeing what else Jono brings to the table.
If you’re in the food and drink industry and are looking for food and drink photography that lets your products shine then contact me for a quote. I’d love to help.
We had a fun trip to Cannon Hall Farm in Barnsley over the weekend.
My little boy was obsessed with the litters of young piglets and had a fab time in the playground and on the sand. He got to ride in a tractor and on top of everything else we got to see sheep racing. Sheep racing! That’s a new one on me…
The Yorkshire Sculpture Park has always been one of my favourite places to visit. We’re incredibly lucky to have it on our doorstep. Last weekend I was lucky enough to finally visit the Beyond Time exhibit by Chiharu Shiota – something I’ve been desperate to see (and photograph!) for a long time.
This particular installation is set in the 18th Century chapel within the grounds of the Park and is visually stunning. A central piano sculpture takes centre stage in the chapel from which threads extend out to fill the entire room, combined with various sheets of music. The piece is described as:
Embracing all who enter within an extraordinary experience, Shiota’s project references the Chapel’s rich history and years of human presence, dating back to 1744, making poignant allusion to the bells that were rung, the songs that were sung, and the lives that revolved around it, from cradle to grave.
There’s a great video that not only gives a bit more information about the piece, but also gives an insight into the installation process:
It’s one of the most impressive pieces of visual art I’ve ever seen and I’d recommend seeing it for yourself if you get the chance as the photos really don’t do it justice.
