'Balti - Unmeasured Measurements' : A short film made in collaboration with Jasleen Kaur for London Design Week 2014



Our short film 'Balti - Unmeasured Measurements' (made in collaboration with designer Jasleen Kaur) will be screened at several events during London Design Week... 

ABOUT THE FILM 

Balti: Unmeasured Measurement
Balti (ball-tee) noun. 1. A bucket 2. A type of curry

A film about the daily process of cooking Langar in the kitchen of Polloksheilds Sikh Temple in Glasgow. The cooks’ intuitive methods of preparing food in mass quantities, is an unwritten skill known only by a handful of members in the community. Cooking alongside them, we recorded their recipes by marking buckets with the volumes of each ingredient to create a series of measuring tools for cooking en masse.

Titles by Christina Forman

Oh Pammy. 2012



Pamela Anderson © Rachel Louise Brown. 2011

Whilst on assignment for British Vogue I took these shots of Pamela Anderson. Being completely fascinated with body language they've always stuck in my mind. Imagine 20 photographers, all male apart from me, crowded around her, hustling and bustling, shouting her name. It was like being in a boxing ring trying to keep my place. Flashes going off every mili second. Pamela rotating between composure and resembling a rabbit in headlights. It was how I imagine hell to be... but the shot had to be taken. Here are my two. The first shows Pammy being interviewed by a very attractive, charming male interviewer. All of her attention was on him. Then she turned to me for a second. 'Pamela, can I take your image for Vogue' I said. 'If you must' she scoffed. One flash and I was pushed out of the lions den. Spot the difference!
