Referendum is a photographic series that explores the tangible and intangible border along the one hundred mile geographical stretch between England and Scotland from Berwick-upon-Tweed to Gretna Green. Referendum contributes to the ongoing political and economic debate on the Union between these two countries. This landscape is considered in three ways: the sweep of grand romantic vistas; the minutiae of border ephemera rendered through the scientific gaze of the microscope; and the accumulation of political rhetoric within the historical and media documentation connected to this space. On 18th September Scottish residents vote on the Referendum, "Should Scotland be an independent country? Yes or No." Landscape is ever present and ever constant: whatever the political outcome, the landscape will always remain.
