Calum in his pie room
This is a picture of the inimitable Calum Franklin in his wonderful Pie Room at Holborn Dining Room in London. A master of his craft, he is executive head chef and pie- creator extraordinaire. ‘Pie- making is a traditional craft and one that I know Calum has put a significant amount of effort into researching and testing,’ says John. ‘I wanted to show his dedication, some might say obsession, with the craft, and highlight the attention to detail that he puts into his work.’ The post-production treatment of the image is a nod to traditional portraits of master craftsmen.
