Hotshoe Magazine Issue 206 (Chris Killip) is available on loremnotipsum.com. Chris Killip, one of Britain’s greatest documentary photographers, died last October at the age of 74. Throughout a career spanning more than 30 years, he made some of the most striking images of life in the British Isles as a response to the social situations resulting from deindustrialisation, and in the process created what Martin Parr referred to as “a different way of looking”.
With the help of his son Matthew Killip, and his widow Mary (nee Halpenny), we’ve put together a collection of portfolios, including previously unpublished images, alongside Killip’s own words, as well as personal accounts from photographers who were influenced by his work like Martin Parr, Gregory Halpern, Sage Sohier and Mark Steinmetz.
Hotshoe Magazine has been in print since 1977. Renowned as a cutting edge photography magazine, it is well known in an industry that has changed dramatically since the 1970s. In 2002, Hotshoe Magazine was reinvented as a showcase of photographic portfolios, with a multitude of voices and opinion that include some of the most influential names in photography today, writing in one of the few truly independent publications, and distributed throughout the world. Forty years after the launch of the print magazine Hotshoe 333 launched as a curated space to show work, as well as offer an array of photo books, speciality coffee, and a simple seasonal menu of food and wine, including organic and biodynamic, focusing on quality, with an emphasis on limiting waste.
