American photographer Susan Lipper depicts rural English village life as an alien landscape. This is the fourth and final commission in the series. Lipper's colour photographs make up a diaristic account of her experience travelling through the area, staying in old-fashioned Bed & Breakfasts, and follows her attempts to understand and to find her own meaning in strange scenes and fragments.
The Country Life series invited artists to respond to the George Garland Collection, archived at the West Sussex County Records Office. Garland made thousands of photographs from his studio in Petworth of the rural England that he knew would soon disappear.
This small but powerful book includes an essay by David Chandler.
