Due South


I have been invited to hang some of my pictures in this gorgeous restaurant right on the beach in Brighton. Trouble is, the view is so endlessly interesting that I’m not sure anyone would want to look at anything else. Due South prides itself on its sustainability as well as its utterly delicious food, so it feels a doubly appropriate location for me. Though I don’t suppose for a moment they use recycled materials – at least in the dishes.

Since childhood I’ve been obsessed with food and cooking, and drive my family mad by wanting to photograph our meals when we’re about to eat. Time I started work on some long-planned ‘food’ pictures. The two pieces you can see here are not remotely food-related: An Habitation of Dragons, with its intense blue washes of cobalt, and my homage to Charles Darwin, ‘I Think’ – Darwin’s Tree.
