This lot has been donated by Our Future Proof to raise funds for The Drinks Trust. Since 1886, The Drinks Trust (formerly The Benevolent) has provided care and support to the people who form the UK drinks industry workforce, both past and present. The Drinks Trust is run by drinks industry professionals, funded by drinks industry partners and supported by thousands of drinks industry fundraisers, volunteers and contributors.
A Shot in Time is a series of five limited-edition photographic prints that capture the emotions people connect with hospitality. Using barware, creative drinks photographer Addie Chinn used responses to ‘what hospitality means to you’ to capture a series of impactful images to be sold as prints.
The five prints are titled 'Family of Manhattans', 'Happiness', 'Shenanigans', 'Resilience' and 'Togetherness'. Each A3 print is signed by Norman Cook (aka DJ Fatboy Slim) and is captioned with lyrics from his 1998 hit Praise You: 'We've come a long, long way together...'
‘Our Future Proof is a platform curated by a group of friends who love hospitality and have been lucky enough to have spent 20 years building careers in it. Seeing it crumble has spurred us to come together to try and help, with this first series of prints, A Shot In Time, by Addie Chin. They shine a glimmer of light on what unites our industry and something to enjoy for a long time to come. This is just the beginning, we are fully dedicated to support the friends, family and industry we owe our livelihoods to, through this pandemic and beyond.’ Mark Ward, Regal Rogue/Our Future Proof co-founder.
