Another Country | Another Country is the first book of photographs devoted to the British in France. In the footsteps of Walker Evans, Rip Hopkins' 68 portraits provide a record that is both personal and objective, showing the real and imaginary world of British expats in France.
The photographs reveal aspects of British identity which is embedded within a culture of imagination and relates intimately to all the arts. In the past this has only been suggested, but rarely seen.
Nominated twice for the Sony World Photography Awards 2010.
Rip Hopkins is a member of Agence Vu’ and is represented by Galerie Le Réverbère.

Les britanniques en France - The British in France
A story of the British living in France through portraits of British expatriate families in the Dordogne region. Having himself abandoned the UK, Rip Hopkins re-examines his roots and his passionate relationship with France. Antony Mair, a British settler in the Dordogne considers what it means for him and others to be expatriates, while Pauline de La Boulaye, a French national sets out her view of the British, the photographer and the present time.
These different accounts raise questions of identity and of belonging to a country, real or imaginary, in the context of a society adapting to globalisation. Disturbing and surreal, Rip Hopkins' photographs resonate at the deepest levels of our consciousness.
This book is depleted which justifies a higher price.
