Descripción

A Series of Disappointments Signed by the Photographer First Edition Regular edition with Green/Gray covers These betting slips were discarded in and around many of the 71 betting shops in the borough of Hackney in north-east London. The average number of betting shops in other London boroughs is 23. Each of these papers began as hope, were shaped by loss or defeat, then cast aside. These new forms perhaps now possess a state of mind, shaped by nervous tension and grief. After these images were made, little autopsies were performed on the papers to reveal the failed bets held within. If betting shops move into places previously occupied by banks or solicitors, they are classed as financial services and don't have to apply for any special permit. In such numbers, they are beginning to feel like a burden around a borough that is trying to improve itself and the lives of its residents, and shake off its bad reputation. This new book is available in three different covers and can also be exhibited and hung on nails or small hooks. First edition, 3000 copies divided and available with three different covers There is also a Special edition of 100 signed and numbered copies in a box containing a bromide print and text stencil Publication date ? 16th May 2008 78 pp / Hardback 36 Black and White illustrations 232 mm x 300 mm portrait format Published by Nobody.

Sinopsis:

From Stephen Gill: "These betting slips were discarded in and around many betting shops (71 at the time of publication) in the borough of Hackney in north-east London. The average number of betting shops in other London boroughs is 23. Each of these papers began as hope, were shaped by loss or defeat, then cast aside. These new forms perhaps now possess a state of mind, shaped by nervous tension and grief. After these images were made, little autopsies were performed on the papers to reveal the failed bets held within. If betting shops move into places previously occupied by banks or solicitors, they are classed as financial services and don't have to apply for any special permit. In such numbers, they are beginning to feel like a burden around a borough that is trying to improve itself and the lives of its residents, and to shake off its bad reputation."
