About

The Strike of 1984—85 shook the foundations of British society, tearing apart traditional mining communities. In August 1984 Keith Pattison was commissioned to photograph the strike at Easington Colliery for one month. He remained there until it ended in March 1985, photographing from behind the lines a community rallying together against implacable opposition. Pattison frames a narrative sequence of images from the optimism of August through the deepening pessimism of winter, to the final vote to return to work.
