About Isle of Man Revisited
“Thirty years after the publication of the Isle of Man book I was in the process of preparing for my retrospective exhibition at the Museum Folkwang in Germany and started to re-examine my Isle of Man negatives. I hadn’t had an occasion to think about this work since the first edition of the book was published. Going through these negatives again I found new images that I now liked, but at the time had overlooked or had not used for reasons that now mystify me. I ended up with 250 photographs that I now think of as my Isle of Man archive.
This new version of Isle of Man draws from that archive. The photographs in this edition keep, more or less, to the same order as the original book but I have changed some of the images, added thirty others, and printed them all larger.”
Chris Killip was born in Douglas, Isle of Man in 1946. Firstly, he left school at age sixteen and joined the only four-star hotel on the Isle of Man. In June 1964 he decided to pursue photography full time. So, he became a beach photographer in order to earn enough money to leave the Isle of Man.
