In the UK, 2016 illustrated how political support can be gained by narrowing bounds for social inclusion. As a migrant, this left me uneasy and started colouring how I perceive my environment. As a photographer, I wanted to find a way to express this.
I started running... with a camera. Running requires physical effort and environmental awareness, leading to less mediation when photographing. The photographs in this series are the result of a very direct - almost animalistic - method of image making.
While this series is an individual response to a specific political reality, large sections of society are dealing with the tension between the local and global. This tension is shaping political discourse and, consequently, they way people perceive place. I hope this work will help viewers recognise this interaction between context and perception.
