The Journal contains a mixture of art writing, fiction, theory, illustration, collage and photography representing the work of Off Modern and its immediate circle of collaborators over the last six months.
The work ranges from the SECOND OM MANIFESTO and NO NEW AVANT GARDES, by Off Modern, detailing the future ideas of the group. WILL SHUTES gives us his vision of a future literature in A NOTE ON NEWNESS and the photography collective, HOLY GHOST, present an illuminating report on the TEMPORARY SCHOOL OF THOUGHT, a group of squatters who founded a school based on the free exchange of knowledge. Fictional work comes from the satirical EXCERPTS FROM THE DIARY OF LEWIS KLEJSTAN by WILLIAM HUNT, detailing the life of a failing artist and GORDON MACRAE’s lingering evocation of Americana in ONE OH ONE.
Photography is supplied by the likes of GUY GORMLEY, with his haunting images of vacant spaces, and PATRICK BARRETT, who continues in his ongoing project of documenting the crumbling Brutalist masterpieces of the 60s. Also featuring is YURI PATTISON, who includes two sets of images; one of the movements of art works at last years Frieze art fair and two evocative half frame diptychs of silent London landscapes. The journal is beautifully illustrated by our favourite young artists and designers working at the moment. JAYNE HELLIWELL produces a work of trademark brilliance whilst TOM REES and CHARLIE GIBSON show their dark senses of humour quite perfectly in their intricate collage work.

Lucky we took so much of the library, lucky we made a banner and following a case disaster, some rushed photocopying and a rogue pad of yellow paper. It was great to visit Glasgow, everyone was great and its just a shame that the library could only be viewed for the day but thank you to everyone who came.
A BIG thank you to Jamie at the CCA, Julia for putting us up and Freek Lomme for talking a lot of sense.

Stephen founded his publishing imprint Nobody in 2005 in order to exercise maximum control over the publication process of his books. His overriding intention is to make the book the finished expression of the photographs, rather than just a shell in which to house them. Experimentation with materials, and a hands-on, tactile approach to maquette making lead, in many cases, to his finished books having an individual, unique presence. This tactile approach includes materials and techniques such as lino cut printing, letter press printing, mono prints, spray paint, rubber stamps and on occasion entire books are manufactured and assembled by hand in Stephen’s Hackney studio. He considers the bookmaking process to be a key final stage in the production of his photographic works, and he aims to make books that are conceptually consistent with their content. All decisions made during production are therefore directed by the requirements of the work rather than any external influences or considerations.
“Stephen Gill is emerging as a major force in British photography.
His best work is a hybrid between documentary and conceptual work. It is the repeated exploration of one idea, executed with the precision that makes these series so fascinating and illuminating. Gill brings a very British, understated irony into portrait and landscape photography.”
