Take Me Away

The colourful series Take Me Away, depicts the life and times of Canton House – a 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 culture, class and the sometimes lonely 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.
