    About The Work

    This print is part of John Davies' well-known series, The British Landscape. In 2006, Chris Boot Ltd published a book by the same title and the series was exhibited at PhotoEspagna. Two years later, Davies was short listed for the Deutsche Borse prize.  

    Easington Colliery began when the pit was sunk in 1899, near the coast of northeastern Britain. Thousands of workers came to the area from all parts of the country and with the new community came new shops, pubs, clubs, and rows of terraced colliery houses for the mine workers and their families. The town is known for a mining accident which occurred, on 29 May 1951 when an explosion in the mine resulted in the deaths of 83 men.

    John Davies’ continued focus on the evolution of rural and urban environments throughout Western Europe over the course of almost 40 years has resulted in over twenty monographs and dozens of solo and group exhibitions. His most recent book, "Retraced 81-19" was published by GOST in 2019.  In addition to institutions throughout the UK such as the Barbican Art Gallery, Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool, the British Council, Arts Council of England, the National Museum and Galleries and the National Library of Wales, Davies’ work is in the collections of or exhibited by international museums including MoMA, NY and SFMoMA; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Centre Georges Pompidou Paris; and MAXXI in Rome among many others in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
