In Flagrante - Chris Killip

« The objective history of England doesn't amount to much if you don't believe in it, and I don't, »

« and I don't believe that anyone in these photographs does either as they face the reality of the de-industrialisation in a system which regards their lives as disposable. To the people in these photographs, I am superfluous, my life does not depend upon their struggle, only my hopes. This is a subjective book about my time in England. I take what isn't mine and I covet other people lives. The photographs can tell you more about me than about what they describe. The book is a fiction about metaphor. » Chris Killip, Introduction of In Flagrante
