Chris Killip's In Flagrante Two succeeds so easily: you turn
the pages, and the good pictures just keep coming. There are less
than a handful of photographs I would not miss in the book. The
rest are just brilliant.--Joerg M. Colberg "Conscientious Photo
Killip photographed tight-knit industrial communities of the [North East England] region in beautiful black and white, publishing the results in an iconic 1988 book, In Flagrante, named for a legal term that roughly means "caught in the act." The photos are... available in a new book published by Steidl, In Flagrante Two, which adds two photographs to the series.--Jordan Teicher "Slate.com "
