Three visual books about the wives of three main party political leaders: Samantha Cameron, Sarah Brown and Miriam Gonzalez Fernandez. The study includes images from the period of the UK general election campaign (6 April – 15 May 2010) from The Guardian, The Times, The Daily Mirror and The Daily Mail. In total, the research looks at 214 photographs found in 102 issues. The books follow the connective model of visual rhetoric, which invites the reader to engage with a new, unexpected form of a familiar narrative, made unfamiliar, strange. They consist of enlarged photocopies of press cutouts, French-fold.
