In her popular series, My Mother and I, photographer Isabelle Graeff spent years accompanying her mother in Germany with a camera, in order to question the relationship between mother and child. Now, in a newly released body of work, Exit, she expands the search for identity to an entirely new country.

Between August 2015 and June 2016, the London-based photographer observed – with a compassionate eye – the crisis of a country whose population has been painfully divided since the Brexit referendum. Now released as a book of the same name, the description of which reads: "A country split between people whose gaze is directed outward and people who are looking inward. A country that has again begun a new search for an identity that already exists in all of its mystical beauty, because its nature remains untouched by social developments."

Graeff traces these upheavals, changes, and developments with her camera. Discover more about Exit at hatjecantz.de. Or find out more about her work at isabellegraeff.de.
