This book showcases Chris Killip’s photography from 1969 to 2005, and is a retrospective of a photographer who has influenced an entire generation of younger documentary photographers. Arbeit / Work presents several of Killip’s long- term projects, primarily in North England, which explore the working and living conditions of people through portraits as well as images of landscapes and architecture. This comprehensive publication, with an extended essay by David Campany, includes many previously unseen works.
"Work of the very highest standards never belongs entirely to its moment. Its genesis cannot be predicted or accounted for, nor its resonance over time. Its force and complexity elude comprehension because its mysteries are as vital as its revelations." — David Campany
