Killip often photographed in black and white but there’s no restrictions on your photos. From people at work or enjoying a day at the beach, to neighbourhoods and industrial settings, Killip photographed what was around him and documented what he thought made for striking, powerful and often playful photography. Let his photos be your inspiration from locations to subjects.
