Skinningrove 1982 - 84

Photographs by Chris Killip

Skinningrove North Yorkshire 1982 - 84 is a series dedicated to the inhabitants and life of Skinningrove, a fishing community on the North-East coast of England. The series offers a unique documentary insight, as Skinningrove was isolated both geographically and socially. Having grown up on the Isle on Man, Killip understood their culture and was able to render his subjects with dignity and respect. These intimate portraits of Skinningrove capture a late 20th century England in the process of deindustrialization.

The exhibition is made up of 40 modern 20 x 24 inches prints, none of which have been previously exhibited in the United States.
