Founded on the site of a former dance hall, Le BAL is busily cementing its role as an important venue for visual documentary. Its latest venture is to invite Chris Killip to exhibit his photographs of Northern England, shot between 1970 and 1990. A stunning portfolio of « What happened » under the yoke of re-industrialisation and Thatcherism, Killip’s version of social history is a document of inestimable value filled with vital, intimate moments preserved forever in black and white.
