Stephen Gill

Stephen Gill is a British photographer who is best known for his conceptual and documentary photographs, most of which are taken in his local neighbourhood in Hackney, East London.  

Book publishing plays a key role in Gill's work and in 2005 he founded Nobody, an independent publishing imprint in order 'to exercise maximum control over the publication process' of his books and 'to make the book the finishsed expression of the photographs, rather than just a shell to house them in' (Sean O'Hagan, 'How Photographers joined the Self-Publishing Revolution', The Guardian, 9 June 2014).
