I recently stumbled across the work of Stephen Gill and was absolutely blown away. His photography/mixed media immediately fills me with emotion and moves me in a way that I don't experience very often. Apparently, Gill "collected flowers, seeds, berries and objects from Hackney, then pressed them in his studio and rephotographed them alongside his own photographs and other found ephemera." Truly so incredible. I found a website with a few of his photography books for sale, but the one I really would've loved to buy, "Hackney Flowers," is sold out. (I found it on Amazon later, but with it's $150.00 price tag, it'll be a bit of time before I can make the purchase.) 

What do you think about Gill's work? Does it move you as much as it moves me? x
