Accolades Review 1997      

Chris Killip

Chris Killip was born on the Isle of Man and produced his first book there "Isle of Man" with text by John Berger, in 1980. After working as a Freelance Photographer from 1965, he became a photography committee member for Northern Arts in 1976, The Arts Council of Great Britain in 1977, and founder member, exhibition curator and advisor at the Side Gallery, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, and its Director from 1977-79. After photographing in North-East England he produced, in 1988 "In Flagrante" recognised, along with Martin Parr’s work as some of the most important visual records of living in ‘80’s Britain. Chris is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Henri Cartier-Bresson Award, Paris. He has exhibited literally all over the world, written extensively, appeared on radio and television, and been particularly active in curating many memorable shows. In 1997 new work made at the end of 1996 in the Isle of Man will be shown at The Manx Museum, Douglas, I.O.M. Since 1994 Chris has been Professor and Chair at The Department of Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University. 

Workshop History

A unique opportunity to get to know and work with a major figure in British (and world) photography. Chris is interested in the way that stories are made from, and personal agendas brought to, so called, "documentary" photographs. By spending time with individual participants and discussing their work, advice will be given on how to approach particular themes, and how both the photographer and viewers might interpret them.
