Leave or Remain

In 1882 Britain was in the later stages of acquiring the largest empire the world had ever seen. By the end of Victoria's reign, the British empire extended over about one-fifth of the earth's surface and almost a quarter of the world's population owed allegiance to the 'queen empress'

On the 26 June 2016 the population of the United Kingdom had the opportunity to vote Leave or Remain, the result of which would determine our future relationship with Europe.

Inspired by traditional Victorian portraiture; this project looks at some of the people who voted in a small part of rural Suffolk.
