LACONIA — Chef Kevin Halligan, owner of the Local Eatery restaurant, is an expert at preparing barbecued pork, which will be highlighted at a new photo show by local photographer, Joe Sack, who documents Chef Kevin's preparations as he creates a the meal. This show opens on Tuesday, April 7 at the Local Eatery in the Laconia.
The eight black and white photographs in the show capture Chef Kevin, Ethan VanVeghten, and Jeff Hoffman, from the Local Eatery staff, building the fire, roasting the pig, and finally carving the meat. This barbecue celebrated a friend's wedding on the shore of Lake Winnisquam last August. In order to serve the wedding guests at suppertime, Chef Kevin roasted the pig in a pit on the lawn, beginning in the middle of the night. Photographs were lit by automobile headlights as well as photographic flashes.
All the photographs in this show are from Joe Sack's folio "Our Pig Roast," copies of which he presented to the wedding couple and to Chef Kevin to commemorate this spectacular feast. Sack has had a longstanding interest in photography, but only since his retirement several years ago has he had the time to pursue this art more rigorously. He has studied with the renowned photographer John Paul Caponigro at his studio in Maine and at the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire. His work has appeared in several one-man shows in the Lakes Region, in New Hampshire Institute of Art exhibitions, and in several magazines and books.
