My British Family

This project is looking

at identity, specifically

investigating British identity

in our current multi-cultural

times.

 

I have taken traditional formal portraits of various members of my family that were born in different parts of the British Empire and family members whose parents were immigrants. I've overlaid these images with the flags of the countries of where themselves or their parents were from. These flags superimposed over their eyes resemble tribal markings and tattoos and make it easy to identify their ancestral heritage.

 

It is generally agreed that although we can see through the eyes of our mixed heritage, we still do not have a voice, as represented by the flags positioned over the mouths, it's as if we have been gagged!

 

We are still being told immigrants, europeans, refugees "should go back to where they come from!" Surely these statements need to be addressed for once and for all!
