Second shoot from my latest project 'Open or Wrapped?'. It started off as an investigation looking into whether or not Fish and Chips are still 'the British Working-Class institution'. Or has it become more widely accepted by other 'higher' classes. However it soon became clear that is now eaten by every social class, and I think in today's society this is quite clear, especially in certain parts of the country. After this unusually quick conclusion I am now trying to encourage the viewer to connect with the situation rather than the emotions found on the faces of the subjects, within the frame. This is what I initially set out to do, however I was very interested in the investigational side to this project, and was quickly side tracked. I hope the audience feel slightly awkward whilst viewing the slightly abstract composition of these images, rather than feeling comfortable in the familiar situation.
