Hemsley and Hemsley

Jay Brooks was commissioned to photograph Melissa and Jasmine Hemsley, aka Hemsley and Hemsley, cooks, campaigners for healthy eating and sworn foes of gluten, refined sugar and all their demons.

They started Hemsley + Hemsley 6 years ago as a bespoke service aimed at helping people with their digestion and relationship with food. Since then, they’ve become authors of their international bestselling cookbook The Art of Eating Well and contributors to Vogue.co.uk and The Guardian. They also cook and consult for celebrities and cater for high-profile brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Vivienne Westwood.

The Hemsley’s approach to food is part of a whole philosophy of life. ‘Our approach to health and wellness is very holistic and inclusive we champion a philosophy which is simple, mindful and intuitive. We steer clear of the ‘quick-fix’ answers which are overly abundant in the health and wellness (and even fashion) industries by teaching a long term lifestyle change. Not only do we champion fats and animal foods but also emphasise the importance of good digestion – explaining everything from the virtues of chewing to the importance of probiotics. Eating well has to be accessible, so we constantly draw on our own experiences of cooking and eating in our busy city lives to make healthy eating approachable and refreshing. For us, food is the root to feeling well but we don’t limit our philosophy there as your lifestyle is vital too. As soon as you look at what you are eating the rest naturally follows – health takes into account mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. We’re big fans of yoga and meditation which we practice everyday. We have inspired many clients to take these up – once they feel and sleep better they look to all areas of their life in a new light.’

Jay shot Hemsley and Hemsley for You Magazine and their second book, Good + Simple, is released in the UK on February 25th.

Westin commissioned Pip to produce his own personal take on their factory, its processes and the people that work in it.

Westin is based in Huddersfield and produces hi-tech kitchen equipment for a worldwide market.  ‘I just think the processes and the look of things in that kind of engineering factory are fascinating.’ said Pip ‘ Especially where they are welding and working with sheets of metal you get these amazing textures and reflections.  You close in on things and they become completely abstract but beautiful.’

Matthew Perry

Matthew Perry

For the second time in two months, Jay Brooks has photographed Matthew Perry.  This time it was for The Times, for its Saturday Magazine accompanying an interview with Matthew timed to coincide with the opening of his play ‘The End of Longing’ in the West End.

Matthew Perry is, of course best known for his role as Chandler Bing in‘Friends’, still the most successful TV sit com of all time with its huge audience figures and apparently eternal repeats.  120 episodes are aired each week in Britain alone.  His current project is more of a personal passion, he both wrote and stars in the play, he seems happy to be on a smaller stage and is philosophical about fame.

“I will never have the success I had when I was on Friends; that will never happen again. TV has changed so much that audiences will never be that big again. The Big Bang Theory is the number one sitcom; it gets half what Friends did.” He loves Alan Partridge, was a great fan of The Office and would “love to do something on British television. I am in a situation where I guess I don’t need to work, but I do need to work. I need to be doing something, but I am not interested in fame any more.”

Pip spent some time at the end of 2015 in Cuba and here is a foretaste of the pictures from the trip.  When he has finished editing the whole trip Pip is planning to produce a book of his Cuban images and perhaps even an exhibition.

‘ I had always wanted to go to Cuba, it just fascinated me, a country in a state of suspended animation, a place I really wanted to photograph.  But it’s changing and now relations with the US are getting better it’s going to change even more.  I decided that if I didn’t go now it could be too late and the Cuba I wanted to see would have gone.  But it was amazing, still a very special place with incredible people.’

There will be updates on Pip’s Cuba project later in the year.

Stanley Tucci

Jay Brooks photographed actor Stanley Tucci at the British Independent Film Awards as part of a project commissioned by the events organisers.  The image was used in the Evening Standard in connection with another event – The Evening Standard Film Awards – at which Mr Tucci will be presenting the award for the best comedy.

Stanley Tucci is probably best known for his starring role as Caesar Flickerman in the Hunger Games series and currently he can be seen in the conspiracy drama Spotlight.  He writes cookery books too!
