Chris Killip

it doesn't get much better than Chris Killip. he investigates place, and the people it feeds, with a rawness that bleeds beauty.

from Steidl's new publication of Seacoal:

"Chris Killip began photographing the people of Lynemouth seacoal beach in the north east of England in 1982, after nearly seven years of failed efforts to obtain their consent. During 1983 to 1984 he lived in a caravan on the seacoal camp and documented the life, work and the struggle to survive on the beach."
