Andy Smith has been continuing a personal project recently, capturing images of local restaurants, including the owners who set them up and the employees who ensure they run smoothly day to day.
This time Andy has been capturing images at St. John restaurants. Shooting in both the St. John Spitalfield’s restaurant (Bread and Wine) and Smithfield restaurant (St. John Smithfield Market restaurant), Andy spent a very hungry morning in each location.
Capturing both restaurants as they were preparing for service, Andy shot a mixture of portraits and images documenting what was happening in the kitchens, bakeries and restaurants. The owner of the restaurants, Fergus Henderson, who Andy captured in these images (wearing the blue suit) is widely recognised for starting nose-to-tail cooking, which gives creative chefs the opportunity to have a positive impact on how we eat and reduces food waste.
Andy says that as well as the chefs at St. John helping to solve problems related to food waste the food also tastes amazing!
