We made a series capturing the loss of belonging as we left university and left the EU.

The work was shortlisted for the Sony World Photography Awards 2019, has exhibited internationally, and was featured by the Daily Mail, Creative Boom, and even Joel’s local newspaper(!)

We’re told graduating is exciting.
A celebratory step towards the future. A bright new beginning.

However for Alice, it presents a lonely prospect; a loss of belonging. For a French student in London, it means leaving four years of life behind. Leaving her boyfriend, leaving best-friends, leaving course-mates, leaving her house, and leaving her community. And as we leave the EU, will she ever belong again? Will it be a final farewell? An Adieu?
