‘In Protest’, an ongoing personal project, examines the impacts of hard-right politics on women, migrants, people of colour, and other marginalised groups, via the documentation of protest and other forms of activism within the United Kingdom.

I do not claim this series to be necessarily representative of those pictured (being that I am a white cis-het man, an immigrant to the UK though I may be). However, my hope for this work is to provide a means of amplification for the rage and sense of injustice experienced by those most severely impacted by the increasingly fascist political agendas currently on the rise throughout the UK. An examination of the aesthetics of activism and the use of public spaces as a means of protest serve as secondary motivations for this work.

A selection of key photographs follows below, and will be updated regularly; detailed reports (including captions, comments and statistics) and further documentation of individual actions can be found in the Dispatches section of this website.
