Miners at the Quarry Pool is a collection of above and below - and nearly every space in between. From the dizzying heights of photographs taken from an aeroplane to the miners just delivered from their daily work, the collection is an unapologetic, yet satisfying examination of the spaces we inhabit and our existence within those spaces. Survival, depression, family, friendship, nostalgia, war, love, and death - each are incisively carved a niche in Miners at the Quarry Pool. Nothing is neglected in this collection; toil and trains take a place among trees and devices of torture - even the courtesies of wearing a hat merit examination. 'See a world in a grain of sand', wrote William Blake; Miners at the Quarry Pool is not far off the achievement.
