Influenced by Dystopian authors such as George Orwell and Fanz Kafka i have always felt a little distrust when dealing with political authority, born from a hatred of being intruded on. This feeling has never been felt more than during my university years which also occurred during the beginning phases of the Conservative/Liberal Democrat coalition government of 2010-2015. As a student I felt betrayal at pre-election campaign promises that were reneged upon once a political party gained power and it led to the summer of discontent that included a number of governmental rallies across the country. I attended these rallies and attempted to show that anger in my photography and eventually it formed a large part of my work within university.
Some of the works featured in this gallery have been exhibited in Coventry and London.
