In-A-Gadda-Da-England (April 2022)

Only 84 copies left

Containing 20 years of documentary photographs by photographer Edward Thompson In-A-Gadda-Da-England is a fever dream of the recent past. Certain themes reveal themselves within the book, many of which were catalysts for Brexit: nostalgia, the rise of nationalism, the bizarre, protest, moments of serendipity with strangers and the sublime of the everyday.

Edward Thompson’s ‘In-a-Gadda-da-England’ is a complicated nightmare of a book. A distant descendant of Bill Brandt’s ’The English at Home’, 1936. A place and a culture stuck in class ritual, fearful, anxious, and surreal.

David Campany
Curator / Writer

It feels like a lot of what you might call the British documentary scene is mostly interested in just repeating the work people were doing sixty or more years ago. If you're interested in a fresh, sad take on Brexit Britain, I highly recommend this new book.

Looking through In-A-Gadda-Da-England by Edward Thompson and as a photographic survey of the UK over the last 10 or so years I'm loving it. Beautifully observed and studied situations, quality photographs that include the poignant, quirky and absurd. Thoroughly recommend.
