Breakfast is about the lost relationship between the food we eat and the animals we love.
A few years ago my boyfriend and I took his seven year old daughter Jessica fishing.
When Jessica caught a fish I tried to take it from her so that I could kill it and cook it for dinner. She started to scream, totally outraged by the thought of eating this beautiful creature.
We threw the fish back into the lake and instead went to a local supermarket to buy food, Jessica chose fish fingers.
‘Breakfast’ was inspired by this lost connection between the food we eat and the animals we love.
