Gordon in the Water, Seacoal Beach, Lynemouth, 1983
In 1983, after seven years of trying, Chris Killip was able to camp on the Seacoal site on the beach at Lynemouth in the north east and document the lives and experiences of the seacoal mining community that lived and worked there. Collecting the coal from the sea washed away by a nearby mine, the men used horse and carts to reclaim the coal, living a unique existence in a harsh landscape. Killip gained the trust of the community to successfully capture these stunning images, including this one of Gordon, which is now available as an A2 poster, exclusive to Baltic Shop.
