Photographer Stephen Gill talks about his series Best Before End.
The exhibition is shown in Foam from 17 May to 14 July 2013.
Foam presents the first retrospective exhibition of English photographer Stephen Gill (Bristol, 1971). The Best Before End exhibition comprises a large number of series that Gill has made over the past fourteen years in and around the London Hackney district, as well as recent work being shown for the first time at Foam. The series in the exhibition all endeavour to reflect and respond to various aspects of life in this quickly changing district, which Gill has portrayed over the past years from the micro to macro level. Chronicler, visual poet, anthropologist, sociologist, alchemist and conceptual artist: Stephen Gill is a unique maker of images who is constantly putting the photographic medium to the test and is able to create a visual language where documentary photography, coincidence, experiment and interventions are closely linked.
