My mother is the manager of the kitchens at the school where these images were taken so I was lucky enough to have free reign to take whatever photos I would like. I wanted to document the move that was happening within the school as they had a new school built and have become a teaching academy, so they were moving from their old kitchen into a brand new state of the art kitchen. I really enjoyed this as I feel photo documentary is my strong point it was a really good subject to photograph.
I didn’t really have any issues during the shoot, I spent two full days a week apart taking the photos the first ones were of them packing up the old kitchen and the second was the day they were allowed onsite into the new kitchen. I have chosen the photos that I feel really compliment the story and give the best narrative as well although there are 83 I feel I would be able to make this series into a book.
It is an on going project that I will go back to, now they are up and running and fully functional, I will have to take a copy of my crb certificate as a precaution and discuss with the head of the school if it is ok for me to photograph now the kids are in the school.
