This is UK photographer Stephen Gill's guide to his own particular world of objects, scenes and the things we do--so familiar and obvious that they fall below the usual threshold of the average personís attention. An original first book featuring eight series of photographs made in South East England--from lost people and the backs of advertising billboards to people gazing vacantly out the window of the London-to-Southend train--Gill's visual scrutiny of the everyday combines humor, formal rigor and empathy towards his human subjects. Text by Stephen Gill and introduction by humorist and television director, Jon Ronson.
