Thirty years after the publication of Isle of Man, Killip found himself reexamining the negatives from the series in preparation for an upcoming retrospective in Germany. I hadn't had an occasion to think about this work since the first edition of the book was published, writes Killip. Going through these negatives again I found new images that I now liked, but at the time had overlooked or had not used for reasons that now mystify me. These alternate Isle of Man images--some 250 in total--became what Killip terms his Isle of Man archive. Chris Killip: Isle of Man Revisited, a lavish, large-format, clothbound volume, maintains the order of the classic 1980 photobook but with some key changes: some of the original photographs have been replaced by unseen ones from Killip's Isle of Man archive, and 30 new images have been added.
