18 Jun 11 - 1 Oct 11 A collection of rich and detailed photographs taken in a factory over four years where factory workers are shown in a style referencing original stances from Trade Union banners created in the 19th century. The photographs capture the industrial environment shaped by heavy manufacturing, also chemical processes and disused tools that Coekin unearthed from the factory floor. You can experience the intensity of working within an industrial environment by listening to sounds of machinery, symbolising the last days of British industry.
