“Dad, what does incompetent mean?”: Portraits of EU families in the shadow of Brexit

Mirela left Croatia in 1991 because of the civil war. Frank grew up in Ireland at the time of The Troubles. Both are worried Brexit has lacerated British society. Daughters Fay and Aine-Daisy are also worried by the incompetence of “the guys in office”.
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.

Photographer: Francesca Moore
