Open or Wrapped

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.

Open or Wrapped?

Is This Still The Great British Working Class Institution?
