On June 24th 2016 the result of the Brexit (British Exit) referendum stunned the world. The United Kingdom would cease to be a member of the European Union in March 2019. The project Brexit Video (also called The Road to Brexit) was launched in October 2016 by French London-based photographer + videographer Lionel Derimais to keep track of this historic and pivotal event and its consequences. With this series of short interviews he records what people are thinking and saying during the tense years following the June 23rd 2016 decision.
Just like the French revolution, Brexit will have unintended and unforeseen consequences on the destinies of millions and just like the French Revolution, as Zhou En Lai (Chinese premier between 1949 and 1976) famously said, it’s too early to say what these will be.
