The project 'Sustenance' is a documentary of a small artisan bakery based in Dublin. With this project I wanted to capture the 'realness' and portray things simply as they are. While I am drawn towards photographing passionate people, I was intrigued by the almost industrial and factory like way in which an artisan baker creates his products. It can be easy to romantically assume that artisan products are made in simple country kitchens, in idyllic surrounds. The precise measurements, times and quantities are all part of the unending cycle of bread making. Presented here is a selection of images that make part of a photo book capturing this unending cycle, and are accompanied with little facts and quotes from the baker.
