New photography by Stephen Gill

Jilli Rose Reader Find

By Jilli Rose in New Photography on Friday 19 October 2012

I first stumbled on Stephen Gill’s work through his gorgeous photographs of lipstick-stained cigarette butts. He concentrates on objects, places and people which go unnoticed and uses decay, the elements and sometimes collage to create images which are astonishingly beautiful, poignant, often funny and completely fresh.

I was possessed this year by the story of Lord Howe Island’s stick insects; it’s so gripping I’m compelled to tell it to everyone. Since I’m an animator, once I ran out of people to tell, making a film was the obvious next step. The result? Sticky! a short animated documentary, and a love song […]

Fiona Dalwood is finishing up production on her claymation short, Good Grief, which will screen at Melbourne’s ACMI in December before heading off to the festivals. Dalwood uses wonderfully emotive insects, animals and vegetables to bring her interviewee’s voices to life, and explores with a light touch what’s to be gained from losing what you […]
