    About The Work

    In Cette montagne c’est moi (This mountain is me), Worms photographed slag heaps left over from coal mining. The triangular mounds lie in various stages of reclamation. Historical remnants of an eclipsed industrial economy, they have been recycled and have developed ecologies of their own. Each 20-inch panoramic contact print is made using the coal - painstakingly ground to a fine pigment - from its location, with subject and object becoming one. The choice of carbon printing, a laborious undertaking, is exceptionally well-suited for revealing exquisite detail, wide tonal range, and nuanced hues as well as being one of the most stable photographic processes.
