Photographer Mark Cornwell is helping us to reveal some of the many and varied faces behind the rise of Real Bread.

In 2019, Mark began capturing glimpses of bakers, millers and baking teachers at work in south west England. So far, they have included Campaign supporters Leakers Bakery, Learn Sourdough, M’s Bakery and Panary.

You can see more of Mark's photos from Real Bread (and other small, local) bakeries in his online gallery.

We encourage all of our supporters to post their #WeAreRealBread selfies (ie faces, not just loaves) on social media to show and celebrate the diversity of people behind the rise of Real Bread.
