Stephen Gill – Outside In Print

by fashionartbooks

Earlier this week, the 2012 Brighton Photo Biennial was announced at the Photographers Gallery in London, and yet again looks set to be a great event. The last Biennial had an incredible roster of artists, including Stephen Gill who exhibited his Outside In series, which I have previously featured. To accompany the exhibition and the book, Gill released a limited edition print which embodied the projects aims; as Gill described……

“My aim was to evoke the feeling of the area at the same time as describing its appearance….The results included some highly detailed macro recordings amongst and within the landscapes and portraits. I like to think of these photographs as in-camera photograms in which conflict or harmony has been randomly formed in the final image depending on where the objects landed….I also used a magnifying glass to concentrate the Brighton sunlight onto some of the negatives in order to etch markings directly onto the image. Some of the negatives I dipped in the sea. I was imagining and hoping the finished series would be like the regurgitated contents of a giant vacuum cleaner.”

The print, an edition of 50, has sold out but he has two other prints from this series available on his website here

(P.S  The print isn’t this wonky, that’s just my bad angle!)
