Head to the Laing Art Gallery to see an eye-opening exhibition showcasing photography by Chris Killip, followed by a talk from the man himself. Drawing from his archive, the works include previously unpublished photographs of shipbuilding on Tyneside between 1975 and 1977. Initially coming to the North East in 1975, Chris Killip lived and worked on Tyneside until 1991, when he was recruited by Harvard University to teach photography in its Visual Studies Program.
