This talk will be of particular interest to members who favour street photography, John’s monochrome images are stunning.
John and Bridget Gill are husband and wife street and documentary photographers from West Yorkshire in the UK. For the past few years, they have undertaken a project to document life in the former industrial areas of England called “After the Coal Dust”. Almost all major heavy industry has disappeared from the UK and the photographs show the people left behind.
They take all the images candidly in the local area and have exhibited “After the Coal Dust” several times in the UK and overseas. The book of the same name was released in 2020. John will talk us through his long term project and his approach to street photography whilst showing us his outstanding monochrome images from the project.
