John Bentham

To celebrate the launch of Wallace Shawn’s new play at the National Theatre in 2016, John conceived and conceptualised this deliciously dark macabre odyssey through a sumptuous decaying feast, representing the disconcerting dystopian vision that would reveal itself over the course of the performance. Stunningly beautiful even as the food falls apart, the film showcases John’s unparalleled ability to bring a deep texture, colour and feel to food of all kinds and in all states. A man of many talents, John also shot the stills to support this campaign, which were used on all of the promotional material for the play.
