Stephen Gill
British, b. 1971
Follow

Stephen Gill was born in 1971 in Bristol (England).

As a conceptual artist he experiments with various unusual techniques in his documentation of the district of Hackney in East London. Among his working methods were burying photos ("Buried"), creating lavish collages with flowers and seeds ("Hackney Flowers") and placing objects in the camera so that they left their traces on the film, causing confusion about the scale of the images ("Talking to Ants").
His aim was to encourage the spirit of the place to become trapped in the emulsion like amber creating a series of surreal interventions in the photographs. He physically inserting bits and pieces of detritus inside the camera body before photographing his local surroundings. Streets, housing estates, markets and canals provide the backdrop for images embedded with various forms of plant life, insects, plastic and even tiny fragments of broken glass from a car headlight. Objects thus appear simultaneously both behind and in front of the camera lens, creating curious juxtapositions between surface and reality.
As a result, flatness counters depth to disorientate our perception of different pictorial planes. What we get is a multi-layered and heightened sense of place, form and texture that works to harness not just what the area looks like but also how it feels.

Gill’s photographs are now held in various private and public collections and was exhibited in different international Galleries and Museums such as London National Portrait Gallery, Victoria and Albert Museum, Agnès B Collection, Victoria Miro Gallery, Sprengel Museum, Tate Modern, Centre National de l’Audiovisuel, Archive of Modern Conflict, Photographers’ Gallery, Palais des Beaux Arts, Leighton House Museum and Haus der Kunst.
The artist had numerous solo exhibitions at festivals such as Recontres d’Arles, Toronto Photography Festival and PhotoEspaña.

In Summer 2013 the Foam Amsterdam dedicated Gill a big retrospective: „Best Before End".
