This is an incredible, historic and significant selection of work from Chris Killip — one of the world’s greats — thematically brought together as four publications in one slipcase. Humbly produced (high-quality newsprint tabloids, and yet transcending any limitations of that medium), it manages to reinvigorate the subjects with both currency and poignancy, making me look anew at work I thought familiar. Featuring photographs from 1970 to 1989, with many unpublished before, the design is a direct quote on Mendelsohn’s 1926 Amerika, and yet here, we witness how the mechanisms and industries of modernity have gradually failed us, and how, in spite of this, communities are forged.
Living and working in Dublin, Doyle spent much of the last thirty years producing music and working in the independent music business. He returned to photography in 2008. His debut photobook i, described by Martin Parr as "the best street photo book in a decade" was published in March 2014. Most of his work has been produced in and around the Dublin city centre location where he has lived for the past 20 years. His new work, K, is a photographic book and music project that moves away from the urban east coast to the western Atlantic edge of Ireland. www.eamonndoyle.com
