One of my most vivid memories of school happened one lunchtime. I took out my packed lunch (of rice and corned beef) to a sniggering bunch of boys in my class, who said it “looked like dog food”. Safe to say I didn’t eat any lunch that day, and hurriedly tucked my boxes back in my bag.

I went home that day asking my mum to pack me a sandwich for lunch. Because that’s what “normal kids” ate.

Although this was a sad memory, it led me to discover so many weird and wonderful sandwich combinations. In this photo series I captured some of my favourite sandwiches from my childhood.
