‘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 being forced apart. With Britain soon to sever its ties with the EU, 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.’
