The Story of BSWink

I founded Black Sheep Weekly in late 2017.
At the time, international political developments such as Brexit and Donald Trump's election in 2016 caused significant upheavals on the so-called 'world order'. All these events from Brexit to COVID have greatly affected not only our future but the world in which we currently live.


The uncertainty and instability that followed post-2017 - including now with COVID-19 - presented me and others with an opportunity. The outcome? 



At BSWink, we aim to empower our peers with a platform to provide their perspectives on global issues and topic areas.


These areas go beyond merely my interests in political analysis and current affairs and include subject matter within both the arts and culture. Therefore, our mission is simple; we intend to act as an intermediary to analyse critical issues essential for our readers.


We are the sheep in wolf's clothing, observing the herd from afar. 


Join us in our observations either as a reader or as one of our team. 

Thank you for your support

Charlotte Ashcroft


Artistic Contributor

As a 21-year-old photographer from Lincolnshire, Charlotte's love of visual storytelling has been a constant theme throughout her life. Photography for her is not merely a static capture of reality, but rather a medium to capture moments that tell stories frozen in time. 

It is her philosophy that through photography, one can capture the raw emotions and characteristics of people and nature. In doing so, one can realise the beauty in things taken for granted, and often overlooked.

Charlotte's photography is simply that: the capturing of life's moments we would never think to look at twice.
