Killip's images reveal the impact of de-industrialisation, unemployment, and social disintegration on the people and landscapes of these communities. And second, he’s always believed that simply recording peoples’ lives has value – so that they’re acknowledged in the here and now, and so that future generations can understand what they did and who they were.

Supermarket Display of Baked Beans, North Shields, Tyneside, 1981, Chris Killip, gelatin silver print. I went back three years ago to where the beach was and it’s so shocking because it’s not there,” says Killip.The essay which follows the photographs is the result of a unique and remarkable collaboration between John Berger and Sylvia Grant. But the images show] this is what it was like, these ships were made here, this is how they made them – this place has a history, a big history. This revised Steidl edition (2016) includes two additions to the original series, which Killip made in Northern England between 1973 and 1985.

The book is a collection of black and white photographs that document the decline of industry and the economic hardships faced by working-class communities in the north of England during the 1970s and 1980s.

Nearly 30 years later, speaking just ahead of his show at the Getty Museum, Now Then: Chris Killip and the Making of In Flagrante, that sense of history is stronger than ever.The photographs in the book provide a raw and poignant depiction of the social and economic changes that took place in this region, particularly in areas heavily reliant on industries like coal mining and steel production. In Flagrante is a book of fifty photographs by one of Europe's most outstanding and uncompromising photographers. 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. First, he never believed his images could make a difference, he says, as he’s never believed that photographs alone can be a tool for change.

As a freelancer, she has written for The Guardian, FT Weekend Magazine, Creative Review, Aperture, FOAM, Aesthetica and Apollo. Chris Killip`s In Flagrante is often cited as the most important photobook to come from England in the 1980s.

Published in 1988, In Flagrante describes the communities in Northern England that were devastated by the deindustrialisation common to policies carried out by Thatcher and her predecessors starting in the mid-1970s. The impact of these images is both immediate and enduring, creating one of the most authoritative and intense bodies of work produced this decade. Wonderful enlarged version of the famous photobook classic from 1988: Martin Parr, The Photobook vol 2, page 299.
