As the world lurches from one economic crisis to another, is it time to tighten our belts at the most decadent time of the year? Alan Powdrill's latest personal photography project 'Greasy Christmas' focuses on the quintessential workman's cafe that has been supplying the all-day Full English since the invention of the frying pan.

At this time of year, the greasy spoon cafe really comes into it's own as garish decorations compete with neglected interiors and over saturated food. Photographing in and around London, Powdrill has incorporated his unique look and humor to a subject that will become ever more popular as we struggle with economic woes and Christmas party hangovers.
