No More Flags

No More Flags is an ongoing project by MacDonaldStrand, the partnership of Clare Strand and Gordon MacDonald. The installation is made up of photographs of extreme right-wing marches in the UK and USA. The flags in these images have been crudely removed to withdraw the asserted legitimacy of these marches as being for the benefit of national identity. By taking the flags away from these nationalists, they hope to disempower them of the symbols that they rely on to spread their message. The resulting images show remarkably similar protagonists marching with blank flags, exposing the blank, monocultural, selfish and diminished society that they try to promote and celebrate. No More Flags is an official exhibition of PHOTO 2024 International Festival of Photography.
