A fundraising event for APT's new education space
A.P.T Gallery is delighted to be showing three films about the work of two great British photographers, Chris Killip and John Riddy, on 2 September 2019.
In Matthew Killip’s film, made this year, his father Chris speaks to camera at his home in Boston USA, for 50 mns, about his life and work during the 1980s, with photographic stills to illustrate each section. It was shown at The Martin Parr Foundation in Bristol earlier this year.
The short film Skinningrove 2013, 15 mns, by Michael Almereyda, is about a group of photographs Killip made in the fishing village of that name, in North Yorkshire; it won a prize for the best short documentary at the Sundance Festival in 2013.
The short film John Riddy, 2019, 13 mns, by Jeanne Van Der Horst was made to accompany a major retrospective of his work at the De Pont Museum in the Netherlands this year.
Before the screenings John Riddy was in Conversation with Mali Morris, a painter who has a studio at A.P.T, about how much they both admire the work of Chris Killip, where they first met him, and how his photographs differ from those of Riddy’s own.
