British, London



Love is one of life’s mysteries. It is something that most can relate to and yet there is
no one emotion that defines it. Love can bring elation, it can also bring despair.
Separation explores the angst and myriad emotions experienced by London-based
couples who, as a result of Brexit, have been forced to contemplate separation. With
Britain soon to sever its ties with the European Union, tens of thousands of people
face the possibility of losing their right to work in the UK, not to mention being forced
out of the country that they share with their partner.
Brexit has long garnered column inches for its political implications, but what does it
mean for love?
