Rip Hopkins — Another Country
Théâtre de Corbeil-Essonnes – Corbeil-Essonnes (FRANCE)
From the 5th of April to the 19th of May 2019
As part of the photography festival L’Oeil Urbain, Rip Hopkins shows a part of his series Another Country.
With Another Country, Rip Hopkins displays, through 31 family portraits, a personal and documentary work on reality and fantasy of British expats in France.
Being an expat from the United Kingdom, Rip Hopkins confronts himself to his own origins and to his profound relationship with France.
An account that brings the question of identity and of allusion to one country – real or imaginary – up, within the context of a globalized society.
Disturbing and oneiric, Rip Hopkins’ images break into the deepest layers of our heart of hearts.
