He began his career after studies at Oxford Uni­ versity and the London College of Printing, leaving England for the Soviet Union in the autumn of 1991. Plunged immediately into the strife of the war torn republics of the former Soviet Union he worked initially as a freelan­ cer before joining The New York Times on contract in 1995. He was based first in Moscow and then in Rome, from where he departed to cover the battles of the US led war on ter­ ror in Afghan­i stan in 2001 and the invasion of Iraq in 2003. In recent years he has returned to Moscow and travels across the world focusing his attention on lon­g er projects as well as indepth news features. Hill is re­c ognised, in particular, for blending a style of environ­m ental portraits and landscapes, and mixing an ar­t istic and journalistic awareness of the world around him. His series of books and exhibitions have been supported by both governmental and commercial agencies. Among recent projects were “Victory Day,” an extensive portrait series of more than 500 Russian WWII veterans published with the sup­ port of the Brit­i sh Council and “Days of San Isidro,” a study on bull­f ighting commissioned by the Spanish Ministry of For­e ign Affairs. His latest book, “Somewhere Between War and Peace,” an examination of the emotional and artistic forces domina­ ting a photographer’s career, is published by Kehrer Verlag. His work has been shown in solo exhibits in both state and commercial galleries worldwide. His photo­g raphs are also in the permanent collections of the Pushkin Museum, the Moscow House of Photography, The Houston Museum of Fine Arts, as well as institu­t ional and private collections.
