I went back three years ago to where the beach was and it’s so shocking because it’s not there,” says Killip. Join photographer Chris Killip, whose work is featured in the exhibition, as he discusses the creation of his groundbreaking photobook In Flagrante (1988) and the decision to republish it decades later. By the time this particular man reaches the top of the stairs, his individual legs will feel too tired for this particular concept to bloom.

Wonderful enlarged version of the famous photobook classic from 1988: Martin Parr, The Photobook vol 2, page 299.It seems a dry take on images that were once interpreted as deeply political, but Killip doesn’t see it that way.

The fifty photographs of In Flagrante serve as the foundation of this exhibition, which includes maquettes, contact sheets, and work prints to reveal the artist’s process. Chris Killip`s In Flagrante is often cited as the most important photobook to come from England in the 1980s. For Killip it’s the latest step in an ongoing process that kicked off in 2012, when he was given a major retrospective at Essen’s Museum Folkwang. She has also curated exhibitions for institutions such as The Photographers Gallery and Lianzhou Foto Festival. We’re discussing his work in England’s North East from 1973-1985, images from which made up his seminal photobook In Flagrante.The title, "In Flagrante," suggests a sense of capturing these communities and individuals in the midst of their struggles. Released in 1988 and showing communities reeling from the effects of de-industrialisation, it was immediately hailed as a classic – and read as a statement against Margaret Thatcher, the Prime Minister most identified with the process of de-industrialisation.

In Flagrante could have been made differently, the show suggests, and Killip’s achievement was much more than the book alone. Similarly, his images of the seacoal beach – where people scavenged for coal washed up from a nearby power station and mine – show a landscape and a community that have now vanished.Published one year after and in a much more smaller run (of only 1000 copies) than the original english edition (Martin Secker and Warburg, London, 1988).
