British photographer Stephen Gill has worked for many years exploring the culture and environment of Hackney in East London. Some time ago he discovered the work of a lost photographer who had begun to interpret the photo of a kiss in a special and personal way. Kissing can be quite like the reverie in a beautiful forest; it can also be end-of-pier theatre. Our 'Master of the Hackney Kisses' knows how these traits combine. His sensibility transcends the profession of wedding photographer – in each kiss you see the future, while the past recedes. Published by Archive of Modern Conflict (London).
