“If there is a trace of bleak documentary romanticism here, it is tempered by [Chris] Killip’s skill at being simultaneously detached and empathetic. He befriended many of the people he moved among with his camera, and you can sense that he must have become a master of waiting as well as watching. A young man leaning on his friend’s car, both of them gazing at something happening off-camera, drips boredom: the slow ticking of time spent killing time.” Sean O’Hagan • Guardian
