Remaining Photographs

Whether you live in the UK or elsewhere, you probably won't have missed the news that this Thursday, the population of Britain will vote in a referendum to decide whether or not the country remains in the European Union or leaves it.

I remain apolitical, ahem. I have had the pleasure of photographing a couple of different events where senior political figures have laid out their reasons why the country should remain in the EU.

At the start of this month I photographed an annual dinner for World Jewish Relief, one of my great charity clients, where the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, was in attendance to talk to Lord Daniel Finkelstein, the Times columnist in front of the guests. Mr Osborne was convincing and his remain stance well received by the audience.

A couple of weeks later, just last week, I photographed a Brexit panel debate featuring Lord William Hague of Richmond, the ex-leader of the Conservative party. He represented the remain vote whilst well-known economist, Dr Gerard Lyons, presented the argument to leave. 

Both events were well attended as this referendum has become the most important decision the average British person is likely to vote for in their lifetime. Some of my favourite photos from the events can be seen here...
