10th Feb 2021. My new zine, What is Britain? is available now. It explores a particular strand of the British myth – one that is about knowing one’s place, that the order of things is natural, and that those in positions of power have our best interests at heart. Old photos, found text, my own paintings, collaged together. All proceeds from this zine will be donated to Sophie Lancaster Foundation | The Grenfell Foundation | Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants. More info here.
