Danyelle Rolla

Born and raised in Liverpool in the 1980’s Danyelle Farrell (ROLLA) is a social documentary photographer whose practice explores the contemporary British class system and its mis/representation. Focusing on empowering the average, Danyelle uses playful presentation, aimed at engaging nontraditional audiences, to document the everyday and challenge stereotypes employed by the media that so often demonise the working class.

Declaration of Independence

On June 23rd, 2016, the constituents of Boston and Skegness recorded the highest vote for Brexit in the country, with 75.6 per cent voting to leave the European Union. In March 2019, the result will be (one way or another) honored and the UK will no longer be an EU state.

Over the past four years, Social Documentary Photographer, Danyelle Rolla, has been documenting the residents of Boston and Skegness. Through intense participant research, she has produced a collection of images that document the struggles the constituency has faced leading to their European skepticism.
