Christopher David Killip (11 July 1946 - 13 October 2020) was a Manx photographer who had worked for Harvard University as professor in visual and environmental studies. Killip is renowned for his black and white photos of people and places, especially Tyneside in the 1980s.
He produced an oeuvre of his photos in the north-east of England, published in 1988 as In Flagrante, with a text by Berger and Sylvia Grant. These black and white images, portraits of the labour communities of Tyneside under the sign of the declining industrial landscape in the region, are now recognised as one of the most important visual recordings of life in the Great Britain of the 1980s.

The book In Flagrante was well received at its publication in 1988. In Flagrante was reproduced in February 2009 in one of the ‘Books on Books’ (no. 4) by Errata Editions. In a critical review of this reproduction, Robert Ayers describes the original as one of the best photobooks ever published.
The back has a few folds in the cover.
