The “Coal Face” was commisioned by ffotogallery for the Diffusion-2019 International Photography Festival.
A segment from the 18 minute installation.
The project built upon a previous projects in the South Wales coalfield. We engaged with ex-miners from four coal mining valleys and photographed and interviewed them in our mobile 3-d studio set-up. Musicician John Rea, created an immersive soundscape made from interviews and sounds we had recorded at old minining sites. The full 5.1 sound -sound audio-visual installation was projected in a blackbox cinema for a month.
