The Last Ships by Chris Killip is a large format newsprint publication of photographs taken in Sunderland between 1975–77, documenting the ship building industry, which found itself in rapid decline shortly afterwards. The resulting images capture a now lost era in Industrial Britain.

”While I couldn’t help making the photographs of shipbuilding that I made, it was a personal obsession. At the time I didn’t exhibit or show them to anyone as I didn’t want to be thought of as an industrial photographer. I had a sense that all this was not going to last, although I had no idea how soon it would all be gone. I became the photographer of the de-industrial revolution by default, I didn’t set out to be this. It’s what was happening all around me during the time I was photographing.”
