Using his seminal work - Hackney Wick - as a starting point, In Hackney Flowers Stephen Gill continues to use his east London surroundings as the inspiration for his work.
Stephen collected material objects, such as flowers, seeds, berries and other found items from various locations in Hackney, pressed them in his studio, and photographed them alongside his own photographs. Some of the base photographs were also buried in Hackney Wick, and the consequent decay has left its imprint upon the images, stressing the collaboration with place. A parallel series within the book shows members of the Hackney public with floral details imposed upon their person.
