A collection of flash-lit, black and white pictures taken in Gateshead at a music venue called The Station.--Ayla Angelos "It's Nice That"
Chris Killip's evocative portraits document how a small movement and single venue galvanized a community, and gave young people a sense of self-worth and hope.--Emily Gosling "Elephant"
Documents punk rockers in action, escaping the tough realities of North East England through music and moshing.--Emma Russell "i-D"
Killip's laying bare of the personalities at the club, in atmospheric black and white, evokes the way Dorothea Lange or Diane Arbus could capture the spirit, almost mystical, of working-class folks. But whereas those artists' works often contrasted the close-up expressiveness etched onto well-traveled faces by alternately placing their subjects against wide-open vistas and the rawness of their environments, Killip stays intimate.--Jason Carpenter "Arts Editor"
Left untouched for years in a box of contacts in the photographer's studio, the spirited black and white photographs Killip took inside The Station document a bygone era of nightlife.--Belle Hutton "AnOther"
Chris Killip's images capture the heyday of The Station in Gateshead, Newcastle--Zoe Whitfield "AnOther Man"
Chris Killip's photos capture the freedom of punk in 80s north east England--Elizabeth Coop "Dazed"
The Station was a legendary hotspot where cider-fuelled punks would pogo to Rancid, Death Zone and more. Chris Killip reveals how he photographed the pummelling chaos--Sean O'Hagan "Guardian"
