Pop Art Sushi

Pop Art Sushi-1

I recently took some food shots for a wonderful little sushi restaurant in London. It’s called Pop Art Sushi and it is both a sushi bar and an art gallery.

The restaurant is run by a husband and wife team, Leandro and Irina, who are such wonderful hosts. Leandro is responsible for the art work and Irina takes care of the sushi. I discovered the restaurant by chance but I now eat there regularly because it really is the best sushi I’ve ever eaten in London.

I was chatting to them recently and they mentioned they needed some photos of their dishes. I mentioned I am a photographer and, because they are quite a new restaurant and trying to get established – and because they are such lovely people –  I said I would do the photos as a gift for them. (I set up my own business six years ago and I know how tough that first couple of years can be as you’re trying to get established).

Of course, the bonus of taking the photos of the food was that they let me eat it all afterwards, for free! So, it was a mutually beneficial arrangement.

If you’re in London and like sushi, I’d highly recommend you give Pop Art Sushi a try. It’s at St George’s Wharf in Vauxhall. You are guaranteed a warm welcome and a superb meal.
