With up to fifty public houses a week calling last orders for the very last time, taking with it a tradition and social environment like no other. A Friday night with friends in the local has made way for a night in front of the TV or Xbox with cheap supermarket drinks. Hampered by this, the recession and the smoking ban landlords are forced to close the doors. The project Last Orders documents the buildings that have been left behind, empty and lifeless, sad shells of something that was once integral to local communities and our society. The intention of the photographer Paul Walker is through the photographs he creates will give these places a voice once again.
