Buried Published by Nobody Limited to just 750 in total each book comes with one of two C-Type prints, and a card slipcase. Each book is signed at the front and numbered at the back. Buried comprises of images taken in Hackney Wick and then buried there. Gill found the idea of introducing the element of chance and surprise and the not knowing what an image would look like once it was dug up very appealing. It also felt fair to him to collaborate with the place, allowing it also to work on each picture putting its finishing touches to each one. The poignancy of this project is that the area of Hackney Wick where these pictures were taken is soon to be itself buried, under the redevelopment that is the 2012 London Olympics. With regular copies of his last book ‘Hackney Wick' now changing hands at over £150, Stephen Gill's new book ‘Buried' is also likely to be highly sought after. Whilst I am not able to sort the books to supply a particular image, I have sorted a number of pairs of books for people wanting both images. The book is hardbound with 32pp and measures 190 x 135mm. Each book was itself buried briefly, prior to insertion to the slipcase, to add the finishing touches to the project and giving each cover its unique markings. ‘The photographs in this book were taken in Hackney Wick and later buried there. The amount of time the images were left underground varied depending on the amount of rainfall. The depths that the pictures were buried at also varied, as did their positioning, sometimes they were facing each other, sometimes back to back or sometimes singly. When burying my first batch of prints, a man spotted me and asked what i was doing, not wishing to give the location away of some of my buried pictures, but it sounded a bit weird to say that I was burying photographs, so I replied that I was looking for Newts, as soon as I said that I found a newt and lifted it up and said look there's one. Not knowing what an image would look like once it was dug up introduced an element of chance and surprise which I found appealing. This feeling of letting go and collaborating with place - allowing it also to work on putting the finishing touches to a picture - felt fair. Maybe the sprit of the place can also make its mark.’ – Stephen Gill. N° de ref. de la librería 2301
