Outpatient procedures in London often require patients to arrive on-site, nil-by-mouth by 7am. This necessitated me to drive to St. Barts in the darkest, dampest hours of the morning in late January. Which then meant parking in the Smithfields underground car park. For a photographer, it's places and moments like this that can be the most fortuitous. I'm a vegetarian, but the Smithfields meat market offers a brilliant opportunity to capture carcasses, white suits & wellies and strategically placed fluorescent lights. And some very warm, friendly meat packers.
