About the British photographer, Stephen GILL (b. 1971, in Bristol)
Stephen GILL became interested in photography in his early childhood. Added to this was his growing interest in birds & insects and his initial obsession with collecting parts of pond creatures to examine under the microscope. In 1982 his father, a keen photographer himself, taught him to develop film and make his own prints. In 1994, he moved to London, where he worked at Magnum Photos, first as an intern and then, from 1995, as a full-time employee in the archive, assisting photographers and developing B&W film. In 1997 he left the agency to work full time on his own projects. Until 2014, he lived in Hackney, East London. In March 2014 Stephen GILL set up a studio in southern Sweden, where he now lives with his family.
