Portraits of the Monster Raving Looney Party

  • Posted 38 months Ago

Following from the UK's recent General Election, London-based photographer Christopher Proctor has created an ongoing series featuring portraits of the The Official Monster Raving Loony Party. Despite originally being formed to satirise and poke fun at politics, the party has gone on to stand during almost all elections for the past 32 years, even winning and holding seats on town councils. In fact, their current leader, Howling 'Laud' Hope, even managed to become Mayor in the town of Ashburton, Devon, during its early days. The party now stands at 1500 members strong and stood for 13 local seats and 16 parliamentary seats at this years election. Take a look at the series below and see more of Christopher Proctor's work here.
