23: Stephen Gill: Hackney Wick (Signed, out of print)
Stephen Gill discovered Hackney Wick Market in East London in 2002. The vast market took place on a Sunday in an old Greyhound/Speedway stadium where sellers sold mostly scrap and junk. Stephen bought a plastic camera with no controls there for 50P and shot the market until it was closed in 2003 to be demolished for the London Olympics. Alongside the traders he shot a hidden and now lost natural world of canals, rivers and secret allotments.
Hackney Wick was exhibited at The Photographers' Gallery in 2004 and Stephen self-published the book in 2005, the first title from his prolific imprint Nobody Books which is now long out of print.Title: Hackney Wick
