Boris becomes Mayor of London.

Iconographically, this image stylistically alludes to it's source which is the Press. My aim in making this work was to highlight the impact of the Media on power and politics.

Today, 8 years later and Post Brexit, what does Britain have in store? 

What kind of relationships are we going to create with old Allies?  How will the Media affect our reading of events? Has the electorate learnt anything from History?
