About this deal

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. To the people in these photographs I am superfluous, my life does not depend upon their struggle, only my hopes. In Flagrante could have been made differently, the show suggests, and Killip’s achievement was much more than the book alone. We’re discussing his work in England’s North East from 1973-1985, images from which made up his seminal photobook In Flagrante. Poetic, penetrating, and often heartbreaking, Chris Killip's In Flagrante remains the most important photobook to document the devastating impact of deindustrialization on working-class communities in northern England in the 1970s and 1980s.

Einführung durch Chris Killip, Essay von John Berger and Sylvia Grant; editiert von Mark Holborn; Design von Peter Dyer. In Flagrante is a dark, pessimistic journey, perhaps even a secret odyssey, where rigorous documentary is suffused with a contemplative inwardness, a rare quality in modern photography. Everyone then stared to refer to Thatcher, though there were four prime ministers while I was photographing.Killip's images reveal the impact of de-industrialisation, unemployment, and social disintegration on the people and landscapes of these communities. The impact of these images is both immediate and enduring, creating one of the most authoritative and intense bodies of work produced this decade.

For me that was important, that you’re acknowledging people’s lives, and also contextualising people’s lives. The title, "In Flagrante," suggests a sense of capturing these communities and individuals in the midst of their struggles.The essay which follows the photographs is the result of a unique and remarkable collaboration between John Berger and Sylvia Grant. The objective history of England doesn’t amount to much if you don’t believe in it, and I don’t, and I don’t believe that anyone in these photographs does either as they face the reality of de-industrialisation in a system which regards their lives as disposable.
