Whilst standing on the roof of an old brewery shooting for another project, photographer and friend Brendan Austin mentioned that he wanted to get inside the old brewery to document its interior and decay. After getting permission to enter the building we started on a 4 year photographic journey, documenting the buildings refurbishment.
Every three months we would visit the site, shooting the subtle changes within the building. It was suggested the documentation to be turned in to a coffee table book (a suggestion we had planted in their heads using Jedi Mind tricks a couple of years ago), so we got to work on what was to be one of the most gruelling print projects of our time. Mainly because we insisted to cut and create all the book illustrations from lino. Less 3 fingers and heads of grey hair later the book was produced. A book that not only documents the transformation of this amazing piece of architecture, but also a book that educates the reader into the history of what it once was to what it has now become.
We finished off the project with a short film of the images that we had taken throughout the process that was shown at the grand opening, as well as the handing out of the book.
The Kitchen are immensely proud of the book and we are super happy that the client is super happy with it too.
