John Kippin is an artist and photographer who lives and works in the north-east of England and who works largely within the broad context of landscape. Many of his works integrate texts and images in ways that challenge the realist paradigm that traditionally underpins a range of documentary and realist practices.

His work has been widely exhibited both in the United Kingdom and overseas and is in many collections. He has contributed to numerous conferences and symposia and is currently Professor in Photography at the University of Sunderland.
