“If you are Black and immigrant, Brexit hasn’t changed how you feel in Britain. It was bad, it still is”, French Cameroonian Thomas explains.

“Because he’s black, and I’m white, Brexit doesn’t feel the same”, Thomas is French and Cameroonian and wants to become British, while Sonia who is French doesn’t see the point. Meanwhile their daughter Zoe is British and French, and son Leo is just French.

Portraits of EU families in London is a participatory photo project linked to the ESRC-funded EU families and ‘Eurochildren’ in Brexiting Britain project, part of the UK in a Changing Europe programme.

Photographers: Crispin Hughes and Francesca Moore
