Land of Hope and Glory
23rd June 2016, the start of one of the biggest political divides in UK history. 51.9% of the UK voted to leave the EU. With over 75% of the town’s population voting leave, Boston, Lincolnshire was branded ‘the most Pro-Brexit, and divided, town in the UK’. With immigration levels having risen to over 10.6% in Boston within the last 10 years. ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ is a project reacting to the current outcomes of Brexit and a nation divided by its idealisms. It takes a look into different areas of the UK with opposing arguments about the ‘perfect’ nation. An exploration of opinions through interviews and portraits, this project shines a non-bias view onto those affected by the decision to leave.
