Charlie Newton’s practice centres around documentary and social issues. Using found imagery he has created a motivational and informational body of work. The work of other practitioners such as Sir Steve McQueen has influenced this body of work in terms of using sourced imagery.
Charlie’s work questions how society uses its freedom of speech and how this is used in the form of protest. Using the soundtrack Iron Sky, he has used the speech from Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator to narrate the video sequence.
