The power of photography and still images was discovered by Scott Hill during the eighties through pop artists The Smiths and Pet Shop Boys, and the Pete Waterman Limited records. In particular, Scott found fascination in how a change of context could lift an image to iconographic status; how zooming away from a subject could breathe space into an image, lending itself the perfect cinematic accompaniment to music. This led Scott to plunder the family photographs and create home-made record cover artwork and covers for poetry collections. Other photographs made it into books to accompany exhibitions that never took place, and into spoof magazine articles. More recent photographs are presented here in their original beauty.
