The Station by Chris Killip is a large format newsprint publication of photographs taken in Gateshead, Newcastle in 1985, documenting the punk venue The Station.

“I was photographing nightlife venues in Newcastle in 1985 when someone told me about The Station, an anarcho/punk venue in Gateshead. I was amazed by the energy and feel of the place. 1985 wasn’t a great time in Gateshead. It was after the miners’ strike and most of the punks at The Station were unemployed. Run as a very inclusive collective, their identity was embedded in the fabric of the place. It was also a rehearsal space and local bands who weren’t playing that night would be in the crowd dancing. The Station was a home for this community. Nobody ever asked me where I was from or even who I was; a thirty-nine-year-old with cropped white hair, always wearing a suit (as the jacket had pockets stitched inside to hold my 4×5" slides). I had a big flat-bed plate camera around my neck and a hefty Norman flash with its outsize battery around my waist.”
