What’s the background of this image?

(Re)view is inspired by a press photograph that captures a moment from what is now commonly described as ‘The Battle of Orgreave’. Taking place on 18th June 1984 in South Yorkshire, UK, this event saw a violent confrontation between police and picketing mineworkers and is considered to be the pivotal moment which altered the course of the UK miners’ strike 1984-85.

Tell us more about these 2 images and your series?

Both shots, like almost all of my Nightshift series, were taken on Medium Format slide film. The Petrol Pumps image was a location I had driven past a few times, and knew it had potential, so I made a mental note of it and I thought about what would heighten the mood I wanted to convey. It had a sense of longing to it, of a calling and that the silence would be almost deafening in the right situation. I knew it had to be at night, on slide film, and I later realised it had to be foggy weather.

Tell us something about this picture

I took that picture when I was visiting the Isle of Man with my colleague for a meeting with a client. We were desperate to get a chance to take some photos but didn’t have much time. We were lucky enough to stumble across this bay with a derelict stone jetty at dusk. I love the light in it, it’s one of my favourite photos, but I’m afraid it doesn’t have a particularly interesting story behind it…
