'Stephen Gill's beautiful images, which incorporate energy drinks as an integral part of their processing, capture this strange state of being – at once driven and aqueous, simultaneously sweet and oh so bitter. His series, called Best Before End, memorialises the freewheeling decline of the west, which, to paraphrase Alfred Jarry, the founding father of pataphysics, is best conceived of as a downhill bicycle race sponsored by a major-brand energy drink, in which all of the pursuit riders have the red head of the Minotaur.'

Worth reading article by Will Self for the guardian reviewing Stephen Gill's new book 'Best Before End' published by Nobody. The book features the works of Gill's Exhibition 'Best Before End' that took place in Foam Fotografie Museum, Amsterdam in 2013.
