Protest

2015–2017

These images are a selection from a multiyear documentary project focusing on protest, public demonstration, and the issues which catalyse these actions. In particular, the series examined issues relating to the interplay of human rights, austerity economics and the shift towards increasingly right-wing political agendas in the UK, with an emphasis on the resultant impacts on migrants, women, and ethnic minorities.

Extended details concerning some of the events pictured follow beneath the previous/next buttons.
