First edition of 1000 copies, Gill’s second book, published on the occasion of an exhibition at Victoria Miro Gallery, London. ‘These photographs show us a paradox,’ writes Haworth-Booth. ‘How fluorescent safety-clothing, which is intended to make workers in potentially dangerous occupations, conspicuous, can make its wearers invisible. They are the latest series by a photographer with a sustained interest in the way cities work. Here he shows us the invisible people who ensure that London and its suburbs function. It is as if the metropolis is a complicated clock which no one ever sees or rather notices being wound up.’
