Photographing FoodSavers

When we launched FoodSavers last year, we also commissioned local photographer Shy Burhan to document some of our pilot projects. She has spent the last few months visiting our pilot projects and meeting customers, staff and volunteers, photographing weekly shops, cookery workshops, Christmas day lunch and pantry launches.

WHEN Bradford photographer Shy Burhan was commissioned to document a project tackling food poverty in the city, she was moved by what she saw.

Shy has spent several months visiting low cost grocery markets set up by the FoodSavers network – and her photographs are going on display in an exhibition opening next month.

You can see some of Shy’s photographs, and read more about her experiences, in an extensive article in the Telegraph & Argus.

It really is groundbreaking. I’ve spoken to clients who have told me that these pantries have saved their lives.

A selection of Shy’s photographs are going to be on display at our Shaw House venue from 18th May 2022.
