Chris Killip was one of the greatest photographers to have picked up a camera. His ability to embed himself and capture various communities from within, with a sense of grace and dignity, inspired generations of photographers, myself included. His new book highlights this even further. 

Skinningrove is a body of work created in the Eighties featuring some of Killip's most intimate and adored images, alongside previously unseen work. Before passing in 2020, he worked with prominent publisher Stanley/Barker to consolidate it into this exceptional new book.
