Stephen Gill is a British photographer who grew up and still currently lives in Hackney in London. He has always worked in the photography industry from a very young age. Now he is a freelance photographer. His work with the urban landscape just shows what can be hidden from people. His work with billboards  shows that they can be used to hide things or promote. The photo was taken in Hackney and in front of the billboard stands houses. The caption for the photograph is children should never be neglected. This suggest that nobody really cars about the scrap yard its just a pile of rubbish and this links with that caption completely.
