IF YOU’VE got a taste for art, music and coffee then an event which launches in Huddersfield tomorrow (May 26) may be for you.
Food Noir is a new exhibition by Huddersfield-based photographers Sean McCrossan and Cheryl Harrison who are known collectively as Pie & Owl.
Sean says he has always been compulsively drawn to designing and creating, be it food, buildings or photographs. A degree in architecture led to an interest in architectural photography which blossomed into people photography.
Cheryl has always been into art and developed a love of photography from her dad and granddad, both prolific, albeit amateur photographers.
As well as taking pictures she sews and makes paper.
Pie & Owl is what happened when the two work together.
“Photography and design is the idea and our motto is ‘Making things we like’ ” they say.
“The idea behind that being that people like us will like these things too.”
As to their new exhibition, Sean and Cheryl say: “Think old black and white detective films and utterly cliched story lines. That’s what inspired the pictures for this exhibition.
“Combine this with our love of food and the idea for the exhibition piece was born.
“We gathered some of our willing friends and set about creating this story in our tiny home studio – and in our cellar!

There will also be a charity raffle at the event to raise money for The Joseph Salmon Trust, a local charity which helps families financially after the loss of a child.
