Buried by Stephen Gill features photographs taken in London’s Hackney Wick, around the time of the planning of the Olympic Games in London’s East End. Knowing, that the ‘legacy’ will change the landscape of this rather ‘wild’ part of London, forever, these imagesĀ  are documenting places that have since vanished.

All prints were buried in the area they were taken in, to deteriorate in the ground. We later buried the printed book in the same soil and when dry, inserted into a custom-made sleeve.
