Tate Photography: Chris Killip | Author: Bilal Akkouche

Chris Killip (1946–2020) was one of the most influential British photographers of his generation. His boundless curiosity and empathy drew him toward groups and places otherwise overlooked, where he venerated them with his camera. He is best known for his black and white images, particularly in the North East of England in the 1970s and 1980s.

This volume focuses on Killip's remarkable Seacoal and Skinningrove series, documenting communities living in the region's declining industrial landscape, and where, in the words he used to describe the Seacoal beach, 'the Middle Ages and the twentieth-century intertwined.'
