Over the course of a year, Hopkins made multiple visits to Canada, connecting with and photographing a variety of people, groups and activities in the Ottawa-Gatineau area.

This archive of work can be viewed as a photographic trajectory of Hopkins’ travels and the relationships he formed in an array of public sectors; from his participation in a yoga session on Parliament Hill, to restocking the shelves at a T & T Supermarket, and riding a horse with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Inspired by the documentary aesthetics of Walker Evans and Robert Frank, Hopkins has captured scenes of everyday life - while simultaneously inserting himself into each photograph and subverting the notion of objectivity. Sometimes easy to spot, while at other times a ‘Where’s Waldo’ challenge, his inclusion humorously reveals that each image has been staged. Often swapping clothing with or being redressed by his subjects, his photographic process is a way to navigate a new country, while the photographs produced are inherently reflexive and have more to say about the maker than the depicted subjects.
