This Sofa Session – coinciding with The Station exhibition, on display at the Martin Parr Foundation 20 SEPT to 24 DEC 2020 – is dedicated to the life and work of Chris Killip (1946-2020).
Chris talks about his working process and the values that underlie his photographic practice.
He touches upon his transition from making portraits using a 5×4 camera and tripod on the Isle of Man, to photographing the industrial North East of England using flash in the daytime.
He elaborates on the value of spending extended periods of time getting to know your subjects and the re-discovery of The Station images by his son Matthew, which led to the current exhibition.
Chris Killip publications can be found on the shop section of the website.
