Signs of Protest

As an older student, I took part in the tuition fee protests of 2010 just after I’d left sixth form. When the Department for Education released the algorithm that destroyed A-Level student's grades, I knew I had to do something. I attended the main protest, to overturn the algorithm outside the Houses of Parliament and the following march to the Department for Education.

I wanted to capture the personality of the signs, focusing more on the creative process that went into creating these than the faces of the students themselves. It was important to me to allow the students some level of anonymity whilst still making their message heard.

My entire photographic practice is Carbon Positive, offsetting more carbon from the atmosphere than I contribute to it. For this reason, I made sure that the Zine was printed on 100% recycled silk paper - and it is in a limited run of 100 prints
