Stephen Gill. Buried

Stephen Gill. Buried

Stephen Gill writes of his series 'Buried':
The Photographs in this book were taken in Hackney Wick and later buried there. The amount of time the images were left underground varied depending on the amount of rainfall...Not knowing what an image would look like once it was dug up introduced an element of chance and surprise which I found appealing. This feeling of letting go and collaborating with place - allowing it also to work in putting the finishing touches to a picture - felt fair. Maybe the spirit of the place can also make its mark.
