This week I'm taking over #Photography Magazine's social media to talk about my "Brexiters" photography project. "Brexiters" is a personal project where I explore the image that British people have of those who voted in favour of leaving the EU during the referendum. The sitters were asked to impersonate someone who they thought voted pro-Brexit. I was not interested in their actual political views. I was just interested in the image that British people had of this voter: how would they dress, how would they behave, how would they look at me while I was taking their photo. I specified in the ad that it didn't have to be a stereotyped profile; I just wanted to see their interpretation of this voter and see if it matched the description that the media was portraying.
