"During an intermittent period of fourteen months spanning 1983 and 1984, Chris Killip photographed a small hardworking, but tight-knit community, located on the Northeastern coast of the United Kingdom. His subject is the families and individuals who were making their living collecting and selling the coal found on the shore line of this shore line. The coal that is found was called seacoal as thought to be coal arising from the sea. Killip’s project lay dormant until recently resurrected and developed into a published photobook."
