Following on from previous successful publications Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert has brought out a sixth publication of work in collaboration with Café Royal Books, ‘Longannet Colliery, 2001’.
The work which was shot at Longannet Colliery in Fife during a newspaper magazine assignment takes a look at the working life in what was Scotland’s last commercially working deep coal mine. These pictures were shot in 2001, and after flooding in March 2002 the mine closed, thus ending underground coal mining in Scotland.
A selection of images from the series was recently acquired by the School of Scottish Studies Archive, based within University of Edinburgh.
