Here is some of the footage I shot in 2017 from Trumps troubled America to a feared victory of the far right Le Penn in France. Happy new year!
From summer 2017:
Amongst the darkness of the recent attacks and days before another election, we asked the British people:
What do they see threatening them and their Britishness.
Instead of heading to the squares of towns and cities where people congregate, we were drawn to the more unusual places within the British landscape.
Places that were once the height of fashion and destination diner spots. But we now know them more as creepy, neglected road side refuge areas.
The great British service station.

Another tragedy strikes London. This time through negligence and greed. A horrific fire has blitzed the whole of Grenfell estate in one of London's richest borough and over a hundred are feared dead. The people demand answers and talk politics on the streets.
The first episode of a series I filmed, directed and edited for the Guardian as part a project launched simultaneously with Der Spiegel, Le Monde and El País. The project looks at how refugees and asylum seekers are getting on in Europe and how the continents various governments are treating them.
'More than 1.2 million people sought asylum in Europe last year. How are they adapting to their new lives? What do they miss? What’s it like to swap Homs for Hamburg, Kabul for Croydon, or Mosul for the Mosel? Which European countries are best at helping refugees settle? In this series, the Guardian teams up with Der Spiegel, Le Monde and El País to get inside newly arrived communities in western Europe to assess whether promises are being kept, whether European society is changing the new arrivals – and vice versa.'
