The Edge of Industry

The Edge Of Industry is a cycle of photographs taken at the site of a derelict magnesium works. Taken near Hartlepool, in The North of England, where heavy industry has died off over the past thirty years. These images indirectly reference the death of shipbuilding and metal works; directly they show the land has yet to be redeveloped; it remains in a perputual state of ruin.

These photographs are both a record of the end of a specific industrial area and also a quiet farewell to the past of the North of England.
