Fish Out of Water
"Fish Out of Water" by Duncan Thompson examines the vital role of the fish and chip shop within its local community, with an emphasis on how it has served its constituents during the lockdown. The project took place around the areas of Burnley and Pendle in East Lancashire, England. Photographing within a mile radius of each chippy presented, it shows the immediate community and their identity which has been affected by Coronavirus restrictions. The project references the working-class roots of the food. Presented in the format of a tabloid newspaper giving a nod to the historical wrapping of the food in old newspapers whilst alluding readership to the common stereotype that the working class only read tabloid papers.
