Contextual research / by Lasma Poisa

Travis Hodges Brexit Cornwall

In the recent referendum, majority in Cornwall voted to Leave. In his project, Travis Hodges examines some of the broader issues surrounding the vote. The photographs are accompanied by interviews, facts and statistics, which makes it easier to read the work. I think it is a successful project, perhaps visually images look a little too commercial / reportage style.

It has been suggested that I too should be adding text to my images to contextualise them. I have considered to adding a sentence or two of the reasons why my sitters decided to support Labour party. It may well be something I do in the future, but for now I have decided not to include any text.
