At the end of June British photographer Stephen Gill will release his latest book, “44 Photographs – Trinidad“. The 44 loose c type prints document his trip to Trinidad. A limited edition of 115 copies, each signed and numbered, can be purchased from Nobody’s Bookshop for £280 excluding P&P.

“The Hackney Rag” is also a limited edition piece. The edition of 1000 newspapers was created to celebrate Stephen’s first solo exhibition in Japan. It presents a selection of his Hackney series, including Hackney Wick, Buried, Hackney Flowers, Hackney Flower Portraits, Archaeology in Reverse and Warming Down, as well as a handful of new and previously unpublished images. Each 40 page newspaper contains 51 colour photographs, and comes with a print signed by the master himself.

Stephen Gill, born in Bristol, 1971, now lives in Hackney, London. At an early age, Stephen was introduced to photography by his father. He combined his interests in birds, animals and music, and began to take photographs. In 1985, while still at school, he worked for a photographer, who restored old photographs and took family portraits. Two years later, he began working full-time in a one-hour photo lab in the city.

In 1997 he become freelance and has continued to make a variety of personal photographic series ever since.
