BA (Hons) Photography, Cambridge School of Art.
“Since 2016, the Brexit referendum has caused uncertainty across the nation which has resulted in a significant increase in applications for British citizenship. ‘New Citizens’ captures Martin from Czech Republic, Isabela from Romania, Humberto from Colombia and Adam from Greece, who recently took the Life in the UK Test and are now British. The body of work focuses on the link between citizenship and identity by reflecting on the sitter’s relationship with the UK.”
