We’re discussing his work in England’s North East from 1973-1985, images from which made up his seminal photobook In Flagrante.In Flagrante is a book of 50 photographs taken in the 70s and 80s documenting the lives of those who had depended on disbanded coal industries in northern England. Chris Killip, professor of Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University, speaks about his career as a photographer with filmmaker Michael Almereyda. Published one year after and in a much more smaller run (of only 1000 copies) than the original english edition (Martin Secker and Warburg, London, 1988). I was just trying to say that these people are part of history, these [events] are historical facts.

His shots of ship building look like they’re from another century but they also show the sheer skill of the people involved, he says, in an industry that’s now completely vanished from the region. For Killip it’s the latest step in an ongoing process that kicked off in 2012, when he was given a major retrospective at Essen’s Museum Folkwang. Lots of people I know on estates, in hospitals, in unemployment queues, now walk on their individual knows and their individual heads are bowed and they haven’t the energy to strengthen their individual spines. The removal of both Killip’s introductory text, and the accompanying essay by John Berger and Sylvia Grant, embraces the ambiguities and contradictions within the imagery, presenting an unadorned narrative allowing the photographs to speak for themselves.Registered office: WSM Services Limited, Connect House, 133-137 Alexandra Road, Wimbledon, LONDON SW19 7JY. Drop by as photographer Luther Gerlach explores the art and science of early photography while demonstrating a variety of photographic processes and materials including large-format cameras, lenses, and interactive camera obscuras. He grew up in a square in the centre of Boston, it’s been demolished, it’s now where the civic centre stands and all the municipal buildings, but he was standing there pointing out imaginary streets and who had lived there, who had gone on to make a lot of money, who ended up in jail, who ended up in the mob, who ended up in politics,” he says. Similarly, his images of the seacoal beach – where people scavenged for coal washed up from a nearby power station and mine – show a landscape and a community that have now vanished.
