Abstract
On the 18th December 2015 Kellingley colliery Yorkshire closed marking the end of deep mining in the United Kingdom. I was invited by the National Coal Mining Museum for England (NCME) to document the site before the demolition of the headstocks and then to create portraits of ex Kellingley colliery miners using an ultra large format camera. All the images were later acquired by the NCME for their permanent collection and this small publication was produced to accompany the exhibition of the work.
