"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
From hundreds of coal mines in an area traditionally associated with coal, especially in the valleys, there are now only two pits working and some 30,000 men can only reflect on their previous life as a miner. This book consists of the pick of some 7,500 photographs, many taken underground, and of 39 collieries across the coalfield. They portray the very pulse of the area: the pits which were so very much the life blood of the valleys; colliery buildings; men riding conveyors to work; coal cutters ripping out the coal; photographs of the men at work and so on.About the Author:
The author has spent years photographing these mines and his techniques involved 'painting with light', rather than by using a flash gun. The effect is to create incredibly evocative photographs.
