Ants, birds and microscopic wriggly creatures in pond water, poppy seeds and pressed flowers – that partly describes the elements in Stephen Gill’s "Hackney Flowers". In this project Gill has again used his east London surroundings as the inspiration for his work. He has collected other objects from various locations in Hackney, pressed them in his studio and photographed them alongside his own photographs.
