Iggy Smalls

Britishness - A Spanish Test Case

3.11. - 28.12.

British identity and its display in Gibraltar can often take on what appears to the visitor as exaggerated forms. Is there an element of anxiety as to how strong the umbilical cord with the mother country really is that underlies emphasising or even overstating the British national identity?  

Brexit has given Gibraltar and the British national identity of Gibraltarians  a whole new sharp edged topicality and uncertainty.

In 'Britishness - A Spanish Test Case'  Norwegian photographer Iggy Smalls explores and reflects on the display of hyper-britishness in Gibraltar.
