    ‘I didn’t set out to be the photographer of the English de-Industrial Revolution. It happened all around me during the time I was photographing’ Chris Killip, 2019

    Chris Killip (1946-2020) was one of the most important photographers of the 1970s and 80s, capturing the lives and experiences of the more regionalised communities around the UK. Killip immersed himself in the places he photographed making the images so personal they transport you to that moment whether he's on a beach, housing estate or mosh pit. Killip was a familiar sight at the underground punk clubs here in Gateshead in the 80s and captured the visceral nature of the gigs as only someone can when they're in the thick of it with a camera. He also lived with the Seacoal miners in Lynemouth. This is a beautiful coffee table book full of photos both well known and unknown and is a must for people interested in photography, cultural history and humanity.

    Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art presents a full career retrospective by one of the UK's most important and influential post-war documentary photographers, Chris Killip (1946 - 2020). Chris Killip, retrospective is open from 1st April 2023 - 3 September 2023.
