Three-part project investigating what was behind UKIP’s predicted successes in many constituencies in the run up to the 2015 General Election. Originally exhibited at the Rose Lipman Building, London, summer 2015.
Focusing on a place close to home, the project revolves around Canvey Island and comprises of three parts; the Man on the Street Manifesto; a typographic record of a candid interview, Oil City; a visual guide to election day and life on Canvey Island, and an accompanying book of 35mm photographs to give a deeper view into what was happening beneath the national media hype.
In spite of the predicted landslide UKIP success, Canvey remained steadfast and not a single seat, nationally or locally, fell to one of the biggest rises in contemporary right-wing politics.
