At some point many of us seek out a sense of belonging. My final project explores this through a photographic study of Working Mens Clubs. At 18 years old I was presented by my Dad, a lifelong club membership with a beer tankard of my own. This was the very antithesis of what I though life was about at the time. In Belong I wanted to explore the complex relationships between the members of these clubs and the sense of community they support and foster. I explore the historical role of the clubs in educating and entertaining the masses and also the personal role they played to me.
