In 2014, in partnership with Getty Images, the D&AD Next Photographer Award launched – a brand new award to uncover the very best up-and-coming photographers and promote them back to industry.
Below, we catch up with the inaugural winner Jeff Brown to discuss the challenges, processes and key to his success, and to find out what’s next for the Next Photographer Award winner.
Where did the idea for the shoots come from?
A friend asked me to make a picture. I thought red meat was a good way to go for a single man's kitchen, a nice size butcher block and the plate for color. We sliced old crusty bread for crumbs, neglecting cleanliness. There was a tipless bone knife hanging around. Throw in some red light at the back to suggest heat and voila. A photograph for the kitchen.
