"With work that`s a hybrid between the documentary and the conceptual, Gill is emerging as a major force in British photography." Martin Parr
This is Stephen Gill`s guide to his world of objects, scenes and the things we do ? so familiar and obvious they fall below the usual threshold of people`s attention. An original first book featuring eight series of photographs made in South East England from lost people and the back of advertising billboards to people gazing vacantly out of the window of the London to Southend train ? his visual scrutiny of the everyday combines humour, formal rigour and empathy towards his human subjects.
