Take Me Away

Take Me Away is a melancholy look at high street and some not so high street locations of fast food take-a-ways. This ongoing series started in the summer of 2008. Following the global economic crisis that started in the same year, the UK entered a recession that saw many high street retail closures. Empty window spaces, to-let signs, and temporary pop-up shops were the buzz words of the day. The life seemed to drain out of local shopping communities, by day charity shops, and by night the high contrast glow of the take-away.
