FT Weekend Presents: Stephen Gill

Saturday 20 May 2017
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Somerset House

Renowned British photographer Stephen Gill will present for the first time a new complete long-term series Night Procession and other new work informed by nature.

Stephen Gill became interested in photography in his early childhood, thanks to his father and interest in insects and initial obsession with collecting bits of pond life to inspect under his microscope. Stephen’s photographs are held in various private and public collections and have also been exhibited at many international galleries and museums including London’s National Portrait Gallery, The Victoria and Albert Museum, The Museum of London, Agnes B, Victoria Miro Gallery, Christophe Guye Gallery, Sprengel Museum, Tate, Centre National de l’audiovisual, Galerie Zur Stockeregg, Archive of Modern Conflict, Gun Gallery, The Photographers’ Gallery, Palais des Beaux Arts, Leighton House Museum, Haus Der Kunst and has had solo shows in festivals including – Recontres d’Arles, The Toronto photography festival and PHotoEspaña.

Night Procession, a series of 84 photographs by Stephen Gill, with words by Karl Ove Knausgaard, will be self-published later this year. Copies can be reserved at a pre-order price of £43 at nobodybooks.com
