Stephen Gill – Coexistence (Special Print 4)

Stephen Gill recently released his latest book, Coexistence, a photographic response to an area of industrial wasteland in Dudelange, Luxembourg. Within this area was a pond which Gill used as a common thread throughout the project; Gill took microscopic images of the life growing in the pond and also took photos of the residents and surrounding areas of Dudelange through the pond water using an underwater camera. To accompany the book, Gill has released five special prints; these 12″x10″ prints are each in an edition of just 30, the price starts at £110 but will rise to £150 after the first ten have sold. All five prints are still available and can be bought from Gill’s imprint, Nobody Books, here . I have bought three of them and will be posting them here over the following week, starting with my favourite No.4.

Rinko Kawauchi – Approaching Whiteness

Last year I highlighted an event organised by Goliga to coincide with Rinko Kawauchi’s nomination for the Deutsche Borse prize and the accompanying exhibition at The Photographers Gallery in London. The event, Approaching Whiteness, allowed the visitor to select one of nine different scrolls that contained a series of images created by Rinko. The scroll was then screen printed with a design and colour of your choice and the title written on it in Japanese calligraphy. Finally, Rinko stamped the scroll and placed it in a custom made box. The event was hugely successful and it was hard to pick a scroll and design for the silkscreen, a lot of visitors were comparing choices before making their final decision! Videos for all the scrolls can be seen here, I chose Goldfish and Diamond Dust.
