The "Back of the House" series is a study of restaurants' often-unrecognized subculture. They present the pressure of consistency, promptness and precision, while portraying the passion required to delight patrons, without receiving personal accolades for one's craft. These photos reveal internal issues among staff members, confines of hierarchy, and the candor found in their camaraderie throughout the chaos. There is more presented on a plate than just food.
