A New Prosperity
A New Prosperity is an enduring contemporary documentary project focusing on the fundamental chapters arising in the UK, at the beginning of the new decade: the day of the general election (December 2019), the tranquil devastation of the floods (February 2020), the spread the COVID-19 in the UK (March 2020). These images discreetly aim to encapsulate the mood and the consequences on the country, specifically the area of West Midlands, by dutifully documenting the responses and the development of these events. The project concentrates on producing a defining representation of the UK today, as its post-Brexit utopianism is ravaged by disasters that are forcing us to face the magnitude of recent social and political decisions.
