With the six founding members of the EU: France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands in the 1950's, to the United Kingdom entering the European Union on 1st January 1973 and then leaving on 31st January 2020 and thereafter, we have quarrelled with the other member states and with ourselves.
With a background of emotion and hyperbole making an informed decision, voting in 2016 for many was a difficult decision. EU and other foreign nationals living here, some for many years, couldn’t vote, so had no say in their own future.
The UK’s deal with the EU to exit the European Union was ratified four years after the result of the Brexit ballot, so the reality of the result of the choice to remain or leave is starting to become clearer.
In response, I am finding individuals with troubles and worries, but also some with optimistic stories now we have left the EU. During the interview I don’t ask how they voted or even if they could. This new series of images is environmentally based, documenting the reality for members of Britain’s population post Brexit.
