Pictures From the Broken Road #32
Just spent an enjoyable afternoon listening to Chris Killip at The Photographers Gallery talking about his photography. If you don’t know his work, well you should. It is everything that photography needs to be. There must have been at least 100 images on show and not a duff one amongst them. And yet he’s hardly known in the UK. His classic book ‘In Flagrante’ published in 1988 illustrates a place foreign to me, yet I grew up only 200 miles from it.
He has been selected for this years Deutsche Borse Prize. His commitment to his craft does not need to be endorsed by winning, but if it puts him on the map, then all the better.
I saw this graffiti on the way to the gallery. My friend said it looks like me.
