“British Paranoia” sums up the feeling of dread that both anti- and pro-Brexit debaters felt in the long run up to the UK’s schism from the EU on January 1st 2021, following the results of a referendum on 23 June 2016. These photos were taken in the shadow of impending Brexit, and represent one photographer’s search for landmarks in a diminished landscape.

The series was shot on half-frame vintage cameras from the 1960s and was conceptualised as a film-like comic strip in which ‘landscape’ photographs offer oblique commentary on the political situation. A selection of 120 images was published January 2021 in a 3-part book series entitled “British Paranoia”, available from SKWCZP.
