"Canada Canada" by the famous artist Rip Hopkins!

August 26, 2016 | By francecanadaculture Canada

Based on an original idea from the Embassy of France, Canada Canada is THE exhibit of OTTAWA2017 to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Canada!

Rip Hopkins strolls through the streets and seasons of Ottawa to paint an intimate portrait of contemporary Canada. Canada Canada incorporates people of all ages, all origins and all walks of life.

It’s also an exploration of the background of each person through photos and short written and audio interviews. Follow us on Facebook and our blog! (under development)

Look for Rip in each photo. Where is he?
