Un âge de Fer et de Béton
Something happened in Rip Hopkins landed at the Museum of Prehistory at Nemours, the least understood, least accessible, the "oldest"of France. An order came from the mists of time led him to conduct a series of primal scenes in which he has placed its 60 models. What history or prehistory what is it? That of the artistic act. In each photo that's it. And that's why they are both different and all the same.

If Rip Hopkins asked Chris to write give next to his images, it is less to comment on or interpret that to extend the artistic act which has produced every time the Museum of Prehistory.
