Helen and her Hula-Hoop, Seacoal Camp, Lynemouth, 1984
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. Killip's skill is not just to capture the landscape and mining, but the real life experience of living in these camps from the men that did the mining to the kids, like Helen, who found ways to entertain themselves in a sometimes tough environment. This stunning image is now available as an A2 poster exclusively at Baltic Shop.
