Ming’s practice centres around a core of food and drink yet spans the fields of travel, portraiture and interiors. He says: ‘What fascinates me is how eating intersects and connects so many aspects of our lives. To ‘break bread’ with others is the fundamental act of family, friendship and community. To quote my friend and collaborator Asma Khan, ‘Food has the ability to carry you away to another moment and place.’’

And that’s exactly how Ming views his work – it’s about creating a narrative that runs through the connecting layers, crossing both time and space. Whether in a studio or on location, his creative mindset is to be ‘lightweight’ – fluid, open and nimble.
