Stephen Gill – Off Ground Special Edition

by fashionartbooks

I have covered Stephen Gill’s work here before, and will again, as I am a great admirer of his work and collect many of his books and prints. For this project Gill collaborated with the writer Iain Sinclair. Following the recent riots in Hackney, Gill and Sinclair walked through the aftermath. Gill collected bricks and rocks that had been used in the riots and photographed them in his studio, creating images with an almost forensic quality. Iain Sinclair produced a text which accompanies the images and documents the process and the day. The text and images are presented in a saddle stitched newspaper which comes as a special edition of 100 with a print, housed in a stitched Ratford cloth sleeve. It can be purchased from Gill’s own imprint, Nobody Books
