Chris Killip

Torso, Pelaw, Gateshead, Tyneside, UK (1978)

I came across this photograph this afternoon and was reminded of this precursor by Emmy Andriesse. I do not know much about Killip at all. But, like Andriesse (and others such as Dorothea Lange, Roy DeCarava) he has here offered a sense of economic hardship by indirection.

Great images of the North East of England, but did Chris Killip take other areas of the NE. It was not all poverty and struggle against establishments.

Great images of the North East of England but I would like to know whether Chris Killip took images showing another side to the NE as it was not all struggle and poverty.
