It was pure pleasure to be part of Sound+Vision 2019.  The Coal Face was commissioned by ffotogalley in November 2018.

It was a mamoth task to arrange to photograph all of the miners. Luckily I could build on my previous years work and many of the people I am proud to call friends.

We photographed them in our portable mobile 3-d studio.

Time was tight and BAFTA-winning soundscape artist John Rea was in Gollira’s studio right up until deadline.

The Coalface opend at the Senedd, The Welsh National Assembly and Shift simultaneously and was open during April 2019.

Musician, John Rea with the wonderfully eloquent Terry Seargent, outside Shift Gallery in Cardiff.
