Stephen Gill - Best Before End
British photographer Stephen Gill's beautiful images, which incorporate energy drinks as an integral part of their processing, capture the strange state of being at once driven and aqueous, simultaneously sweet and oh so bitter. The Best Before End series memorialises the freewheeling decline of the west, which – to paraphrase Alfred Jarry, the founding father of pataphysics – is "best conceived of as a downhill bicycle race sponsored by a major-brand energy drink, in which all of the pursuit riders have the red head of the Minotaur." - Will Self Thanks to Archive of Modern Conflict (London).
