5.0 out of 5 stars Field Studies : A Rare Perspective on the Everyday, 30 Aug 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Field Studies (Hardcover)
Stephen Gill's book provides an enlightening perspective on the everyday that we simply pass by when going about daily life. Stephen opens our eyes to what exists all around us, and provokes us to see what treasures can be found there. His series of photographs literally exploring what lies behind billboards is amazingly effective, with the captions actually adding to the compositions, while his exposure of the cult of the shopping trolley has led me to smile in recognition whenever I now encounter a woman with trolley on the street. As a commuter, it was a joy to see how Stephen has captured the expressions of train travellers lost in their thoughts on a Kent train, and even the cashpoint shots have a certain beauty in acknowledging the detail in something that we rarely allow a second thought. This book is an inspired treat that I would highly recommend to admirers of good photography as well as anyone who can appreciate an eye-opening view of what lies all around us.
