For many the Isle of Man inspires curiosity. In part, Celtic, an ancient, insular, independent community of the land and sea and in part a new territory, a tax haven and 'opportunity area' for the rich who shelter under its moderate taxation. To Christopher Killip it is home. A native Manxman, he has witnessed the growing paradox of his island and photographed its enduring nature. Sensing the achievement of such tradition in the land and its people, Killip's images reflect their relationship, touching the ways each has shaped the other with the singular perception of the insider. In 69 finely reproduced photographs coupled with historic and contemporary texts, this book forms a unique record of changing community. A record that joins intimacy and a classic stillness to the dynamism of a living document.
