The Tower.  Sian Vinna Bevan
We move from experiments in the traditional
darkroom to Photoshop, to explore a layered
imagery of the Coalfield. A landscape of our
own making as visual play, memory and
history interweave to produce new narratives
of place and hope:
The view of houses and Works: a zoom-in to
frame the the concrete tower that eclipses all:
and a chance conversation with the man out
walking his dog:
Master of all he surveys, the Coke Works
now scheduled for demolition: Remembering
his working life in the plant, a fatal fall from
the top of the tower narrowly escaped:
Walking proudly away, clenching his carved
walking stick, his sheep dog running ahead.
