Take Me Away

The colourful series Take Me Away, depicts the life and times of Canton House Рa 1970s Chinese takeaway opened by the Yau family after emigrating to the UK, in search of a better life. Portraying a melting pot of modern-day Britain, the 15-image series explores class, culture and the act of waiting. Shot over a period of 8 weeks; Nicky built a replica of the takeaway inside his studio with the original details meticulously reproduced.

Here are some of our favourites from the series.
