Chris Killip: In Flagrante Two

Text by Chris Killip.

"Punks, Gateshead, Tyneside" is reproduced from <i> Chris Killip: In Flagrante Two</i>.The photographs that Chris Killip (born 1946) took in Northern England between 1973 and 1985 were first published by Secker & Warburg as In Flagrante in 1988, a volume that quickly established itself as the most important 1980s photobook on England and a classic of the genre. Compassionate but unwavering in its gaze, In Flagrante documented industrial Northern England in decline, suffering from the aftershocks of neoliberal economic strategies most brutally embodied in the policies of Margaret Thatcher. "The objective history of England doesn't amount to much if you don't believe in it, and I don't," reflects Killip. "And I don't believe that anyone in these photographs does either, as they face the reality of deindustrialization in a system which regards their lives as disposable."
Chris Killip: In Flagrante Two revisits the classic photobook with a beautifully produced, radically updated presentation: each double-page spread features a single image on the right side. Strident in its belief in the primacy and power of the photographic image, In Flagrante Two allows for and embraces ambiguities and contradictions arising from the unadorned narrative sequence, completely devoid of text--forcing viewers to truly look, to witness.

"Punks, Gateshead, Tyneside" is reproduced from Chris Killip: In Flagrante Two.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Daily Mail Online

Corey Charlton

[Killip's] photographs remain some of the most powerful images to ever capture 1970s and 1980s Britain.

Slate.com

Jordan Teicher

Killip photographed tight-knit industrial communities of the [North East England] region in beautiful black and white, publishing the results in an iconic 1988 book, In Flagrante, named for a legal term that roughly means “caught in the act.” The photos are... available in a new book published by Steidl, In Flagrante Two, which adds two photographs to the series.

Hyperallergic

John Yau

Killip’s photographs invite us to contemplate the destruction of a way of life...They also challenge us to do something about it.

Conscientious Photo Magazine

Jörg M. Colberg

Chris Killip‘s In Flagrante Two succeeds so easily: you turn the pages, and the good pictures just keep coming. There are less than a handful of photographs I would not miss in the book. The rest are just brilliant.

Wallpaper

Paula Erizanu

Widely considered Killip's masterpiece.

B+W Photography

Every picture is given space to breathe, and to reveal its secrets.

Photo-Eye Blog, Best of 2016

Moises Saman

This book is a masterpiece

The Threepenny Review

Tomas Unger

[Chris Killip's] fierce loyalty to the hardscrabble people he portrays has lent his work, over the years, an unfailingly political charge.

The Los Angeles Times

Carolina A. Miranda

Killip’s photographs are rich with history and with stories.

Photograph Magazine

Jean Dykstra

A rare opportunity to see the entire series.

Chris Killip: In Flagrante Two, Rocker and his toad

Let the photo world rejoice. Steidl's new, expanded, enlarged and redesigned edition of Chris Killip's seminal 1988 photobook has arrived at last. Featured image is "Rocker and his toad, Lynemouth, Northumberland." The Guardian's Sean O'Hagan writes, "Killip photographed stern-faced adults and bored teenagers with nothing to do and nowhere to go as well as the landscapes of an older way of life suddenly gone: terraced houses dwarfed by cranes and chimneys, huge ships looming over streets. It is the people, though, who draw you in." continue to blog

Chris Killip: In Flagrante Two

Every season, there's a book on our list that pulls out ahead of all the rest, in terms of demand, praise and historical place. This season, that book is Steidl's expanded reprint of Chris Killip's 1988 photojournalistic masterpiece, In Flagrante Two. Glowingly reviewed in TIME, The Financial Times, The Guardian, Slate and dozens of other media outlets, the new edition, available in the U.S. for the first time this week, features two additional images, a larger trim size and new, more spacious design. Needless to say, the printing is exquisite. The photographs themselves remain, in the words of The Daily Mail, "some of the most powerful images to ever capture 1970s and 1980s Britain." Image above is "Bever, Skinningrove, N Yorkshire." continue to blog
