Billingham has photographed increasingly within the landscape and this book brings together this work for the first time. The images are contemplative and thoughtful and reflect his primary concern for the ‘making’ of an image.
Billingham first exhibited in 1995 at the Anthony Reynolds Gallery, London, by whom he is still represented. His work has received significant international acclaim – in 1997 he won the Citibank Photography Prize and his work was one of the talking points of ‘Sensation’, the exhibition of Contemporary British Art from the Saatchi Collection. He was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2001.
The work is introduced by Sacha Craddock, leading art critic and broadcaster.
