As The Tide Came In
The East Durham Coast line is peppered with towns and villages that once relied on the coal and steel industries of the region. Now long gone, these towns remain with reminders of the former industrial power house. The reminders are in etched into the landscape along the East Durham Coast line and on the landscape of County Durham.
As The Tide Came In is a body of work in which I am exploring my home region in the 21st Century and looking at how the former coal and steel industries have affected the landscape today and the identity of those that still call County Durham home.
