by Stephen Gill
“A pillar knocked into the ground next to a stream in a flat, open landscape, trees and houses visible in the distance, beneath a vast sky. That is the backdrop to all of Stephen Gill's photographs. We see the same landscape in spring and summer, in autumn and winter, we see it in sunshine and rain, in snow and wind. Yet there is not the slightest monotony about these pictures. [...] Every moment is unique and carries the hallmark of the miracle: what happens happens only once and never again.”
Karl Ove Knausgård
