"The two projects share a commonality, in that they both explore political, cultural and social issues at a time of great uncertainty. In both projects, Poyser engaged with the public to 'encompass their opinions, hopes and desires about their unique socio-political situations. As a collective, their voices amass an account which is representative of precarious times. Each respondent was invited to tear a print in ‘The Invisible In-between’ to make the invisible visible then to share a written comment about their thoughts on Brexit. In a similar manner, a subset of photographs from ‘Masked’ is a series of 130 Amazon employees asked to write and display their introspections'."

Tristan Poyser's work explores identity and perceptions through social documentary and more recently self portraiture and still life, with a view to creating a narrative of current affairs, that reflects the views and opinions of the general public, opposed to those controlled by politicians and the media.
