Stephen Gill is known for his documentary photography focussing on the Hackney Wick area of East London, as well as his self-published books which are as much art objects as photography books.

The newspaper was published to coincide with Gill's first solo exhibition in Japan. Each copy came with a choice of signed printt, either 'Jacket' or 'Puddle'.

'In The Hackney Rag, Gill knits together images from a selection of his Hackney Series including Hackney Wick, Buried, Hackney Flowers, Hackney Flower Portraits, Archaeology in Reverseand Warming Down as well as a handful of new and unpublished images.' (from the publisher's description).
