Unsichtbar, das sind diejenigen, die die Stadt am Laufen halten, die Müllmänner und städtischen Arbeiter. Trotz ihrer farbigen Kleidung achtet niemand auf sie, sie gehen unter. Und aus dem Untergrund sorgen sie für Sicherheit, Sauberkeit, Routine, für unser tägliches Zusammenleben.
Stephen Gill hat dieses Buch selber publiziert und es ist ein großartiger Erfolg. Das ist bewegliche, intelligente und sensible Fotografie!

Anyone who uses Britain's highways and thoroughfares is only too aware of the ubiquity of roadworks. They are a feature of every town and city, a bane of modern life. But despite the inconvenience they cause, it's as if we don't see them; they are so familiar, they are almost invisible.
In a three-part series, photographer Stephen Gill documents the chaos and noise that accompany roadworks and captures the city being built, and rebuilt, around us every day.

"Stephen Gill's photographs have all the naïve gusto of the field studies series of old. Mercifully lacking in sarcasm and malevolent irony, they are also wise and modern and beautifully laden with tiny, understated details about the way we live today."
