London: Nobody, 2005.
Stephen Gill's first book published under his own inprint, Nobody. In his series 'Invisible', the subjects are united only by their fluorescent orange workwear; the irony being that jackets specifically designed to be highly visible seem to only underline the invisibility of those who wear them. It's interesting that Gill often wears such a jacket to take his pictures - it apparently guarantees him the anonymity that street photographers need. It's a gentle but rich irony that seems to infuse much of Gill's work. His photos are "mercifully lacking in malevolence, ... wise and modern and beautifully laden with tiny, understated details about the way we live today. There is a wonderful, often inadvertent, eccentricity to them." Item #1810
