Bennetts Corner (Giro Corner), South Bank, Middlesbrough, 1982


20/20 brings together work by British photographers Chris Killip (1946-2020) and Graham Smith (1947) for a reconceived telling of their seminal show, Another Country, originally exhibited at the Serpentine Gallery, London, in 1985. Through snapshots and ephemera, the show also recognises their lifelong friendship with one another.

Killip and Smith first met in 1975 through Amber, a film and photography collective in Newcastle upon Tyne. They both photographed in North East England during a period when heavy industry was still thriving, followed by an unforeseen and devastating collapse. The photographers documented the individuals and communities whose lives depended on these industries, people who were facing a politically forced change to the landscape and their ways of life that had been settled for generations.

The idea for 20/20 was conceived by Augusta Edwards in 2019 and at that time Killip and Smith each selected 20 images taken between 1975 and 1987 for the exhibition.
