Back in 2019, the Real Bread Campaign helped to put Weymouth-based photographer Mark Cornwell in touch with bakery owners for a project capturing bakers at work.

In November 2022, Mark included a selection of the images in a portfolio called Give Us This Day… which he submitted to the Royal Photographic Society. This helped Mark to secure a Fellowship, which the RPS describes as ‘Our highest level of Distinction.’

Mark, who has a passion for bread making and whose great, great, great grandfather was a baker in the early nineteenth century, said: “it was a privilege to be able to record the bakers at work. The bakers involved in the project were just amazing.”

He went on to say: “I feel quite honoured to have gained my FRPS. I’ve wanted to get there since I was a teenager and I’m delighted to be one of something like 600 people in the world that have reached this distinction.”

Mark has posted images from and notes about his FRPS project on his website.
