About A Series of Disappointments
Each of these papers began as hope, were shaped by loss or defeat, then cast aside. So these new forms perhaps now possess a state of mind, shaped by nervous tension and grief. After these images were made, little autopsies were then performed on the papers to reveal the failed bets held within. If betting shops move into places previously occupied by banks or solicitors, they are classed as financial services and don't have to apply for any special permit. In such numbers, they are beginning to feel like a burden around a borough that is trying to improve itself and the lives of its residents, and to shake off its bad reputation.
Stephen Gill (b. 1971, Bristol, UK) initially became interested in photography in early childhood. Thanks to his father and interest in insects as well as his 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.
