Chris Killip, one of Britain’s greatest documentary photographers, died last October at the age of 74. Throughout a career spanning more than 30 years, he made some of the most striking images of life in the British Isles as a response to the social situations resulting from deindustrialisation, and in the process created what Martin Parr referred to as “a different way of looking”.

With the help of his son Matthew Killip, and his widow Mary (nee Halpenny), we’ve put together a collection of portfolios, including previously unpublished images, alongside Killip’s own words, as well as personal accounts from photographers who were influenced by his work like Martin Parr, Gregory Halpern, Sage Sohier, and Mark Steinmetz.
