Chris Killip & Black and White Photography
Chris Killip captures people's lives all in black and white. When walking into the exhibition there was a big red wall, was this to create a contrast between the pictures and the environment or was this purely an accident?
Each of the pictures tells a different story. Some of them made me feel like I knew the person or the story but some of them were just simple pictures that anyone could have taken. What intrigued me about this gallery were the monotone colours. This is probably a personal preference, but it almost felt sad. While it represents a nostalgic feeling I would love to see some of the images in colour. In my opinion, colour always brings life to things so while capturing nostalgic and emotional pictures
in black and white makes sense, I think it would grab life even better in colour.
