stephen gill • buried

such a lovely project by stephen gill. he took all of these pictures in hackney wick, england and then buried the photographs there varying the amount of time and depth the pictures were underground. here's what stephen has to say: "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 in a way collaborating with place--allowing it also to work on putting the finishing touches to a picture--felt fair. maybe the spirit of the place can also make its mark." see more from this project right here. and big thanks to mike for sending me this link.
