Britain is in the midst of change. The divides across the country have been widened by the results of the 2016 vote calling for Brexit and 2017’s general election. There are many questions surrounding the issues of Brexit and the election that Dench wanted to put to the people of the nation.
Is life in Britain about to become better or worse? Will employment opportunities diminish, or thrive? What will happen to the economy? Are the British worried about the future and do the elderly care about it less than the young? Will immigrants in Britain feel unsafe and be forced to leave? How proud do people feel to be British?
The A1, Britain’s longest numbered road was Peter Dench’s connection to the people of Britain. It begins in the South, in the city of London, ending 410 miles later in Edinburgh. He travelled the length photographing the eclectic characters he met on his journey; in truck stops, cafes, temples, homes, businesses and bars. The A1 provided a route of certainty in a time of tumult, through a nation on the verge.
