William Hill reinterprets ordinary and simple objects as strangely unfamiliar images through alternative photographic processes. The basic elements of visual representation become theatrical players when color, form, and light converge upon respective subjects in alternating modes of importance.

The tension between abstraction and manipulation, implicit in Hill’s photographic endeavors, allows him to approach photography as a medium that facilitates transformation of an object, on the one hand, by representing reality while assigning the same subject multiple values.

Hill is a photographic linguist who believes that people have the innate ability to ‘read’ images semantically.
