London based British photographer Stephen Gill practices a conceptual approach to documentary photography: the insistent development of an idea without altering or intervening in the action. In the series Lost, bewildered people search through maps of the dense and tangled streets of London. Focusing on minute details and seemingly mundane situations, Gill’s images capture classic characteristics of disorientation and discovery in the city with great wit and a dash of irony.
The installation of Gill's photographs in St. Andrew subway station, opposite a series of images by Canadian artist Stephen Waddelll, sheds light on the intertwined forces of autonomy and dependence in contemporary urban life.
