Tory Ho

NOOR - Remain Calm & Leave

Tory Ho is a visual storyteller from Hong Kong – currently finishing her degree in Falmouth. Her work focuses on how politics create divisions within society, and through which informs our identity. 

 

Remain Calm & Leave

 

“Brexit means Brexit,” was British Prime Minister, Theresa May’s, initial motto after the EU referendum – that was only just the beginning of this new political landscape we find ourselves in today. With social media utilising algorithms that filters and curates a newsfeed for the user, we as a society, are entering a dangerous era where we isolate ourselves from the ‘other’. 

 

Remain Calm & Leave (working title), is an ongoing photographic project that utilises a combination of visuals and text, to explore the division in British society as revealed by the referendum. Through exposing the viewer to multiple sides of the issue, it is my hope that the audience can walk away with a stronger and more thorough understanding of Brexit, and have more empathy for one another.
