Seacoal By Chris Killip

“When I first saw the beach at Lynemouth in January 1976, I recognized the industry above it but nothing else I was seeing. The beach beneath me was full of activity with horses and carts backed into the sea. Men were standing in the sea next to the carts, using small wire nets attached to poles to fish out the coal from the water beneath them. The place confounded time; here the Middle Ages and the twentieth century intertwined.” – Chris Killip

Seacoal presents 124 photographs from Killip’s documentation of the life, work and the struggle to survive on Lynemouth seacoal beach in the north east of England. Beginning the work in 1982, Killip lived in a caravan on the seacoal camp from 1983 to 1984.
