A personal project which explores the formation of communal identity, the value of the chicken and chip shop, and all the rituals practiced by the youth who visit these shops on their way home.
I have also created a photobook, an interview booklet and a 60 page research publication to accompany these final illustrations.
3.37pm on a friday afternoon.
College is done.
We reach the chicken shop about seven girl strong. 2 wings and chips all round. The pound meal.
Take away because the back of the bus is waiting for us.
