The Photographers’ GalleryLondon is currently hosting an exhibition of the retrospective work of Chris KillipOne of the most influential figures in British photographic history. This exhibition features more than 140 works and includes previously unseen works.
Killip’s continued immersion in the communities that he photographed is unrivalled. Killip’s poignant, yet tender observation marks a moment of deindustrialisation. It goes beyond the urgency to capture such circumstances. It affirms the value of the lives he grew closer to. Lives that, as he once stated, “had history done to them”, who felt history’s malicious disregard, but, like Killip, refused or looked away.
His background in shipbuilding and coal mines gave him the opportunity to witness the cohesion of communities and the industries which sustained them, and he remained long enough to see their decline.
