You will have seen Grant Smith‘s wonderful photographs of artisan food craftspeople in the recent issue of the Journal, and now those pictures and many others by Grant are on display at the New London Architecture gallery in the Building Centre, Store Street, WC2.

The images celebrate and documents some of the artisan food producers of London, including Wilde’s Cheese, the House of Sverre, smokers of salmon, Dalston Cola, Pavilion Bakers and the brewers Crate proudly displaying their produce.
