Stephen Gill
Archaeology in Reverse
HC, 22,5 x 22,5 cm., o.pp.
Nobody 2007


Nach dem Marathon-Lauf, der zur Publikation des prämierten "Hackney Wick" führte, blieb noch etwas Atem, und diese Serie entstand. Bevor in Hackney alles niedergerissen wurde, um dem Olympia-Stadion für London 2012 zu weichen, fotografierte Gill die Zeichen der Zerstörung: Landvermesser, Markierungen, Politiker, die Einwohner eines Viertels, das verschwinden wird. Unsere besondere Empfehlung!

A district of London will vanish. Because mostly those people live there that are penni - and powerless, this process is unstoppable. The Olympic stadium will be erected there and Stephen Gill is the one photographer to document the life and times of those that will have to resettle. Already the markings of the future destruction have been made, the land is being prepared for transformation. Like Danny Lyon in Manhattan Gill cares and does all he can to save the most by all visual means of a district.
