Abstract

This is an essay and a collection of photographs of British industrial ruins taken between 2002 and 2004 that features fragments of a vanished industrial workplace, replete with its modes of conviviality, having fun and sharing enthusiasms. The photographs hint at a working class culture that is rapidly disappearing in the UK, but they cannot capture it. Yet they offer images for conjecture about a recent past, with its traces of collectivity, humour and solidarity that haunts a potentially more dystopian future, and aim to honour a history that is in danger of being marginalised.
