There are few Brits you’ll meet in suburban towns who don’t entertain dreams of moving to Spain or the south of France or Australia, and living out the rest of their days in a state of perpetual holiday. And for the ones who do there’s Charlie Clift, a London-based photographer who has just made Brits Abroad, a series which shines a new light on the immigration debate by capturing British expats living abroad.
Most interesting about these images is the degree to which Charlie’s subjects integrate themselves into the community they are living in; from a disgruntled-looking man wearing a Hawaiian shirt and puffing on a cigar, to another clutching a golf club and looking like he never intends to leave the course, there’s something completely unchanging about the expressions of their faces. Charlie’s a dab hand at a tongue in cheek comment on Brits and we’re completely enamoured with his portraits.
