Meloni Poole A Clean Slate 2000

A selection of photos taken by Meloni Poole at Annesley Colliery during the production of her documentary film A Clean Slate between Oct 99 - Jan 2000, in the run up to colliery’s closure. The film reflected on the final days of the pit and Meloni’s relationship with her father who worked there for 35 years and was screened at the gates of Annesley colliery after it had closed in September 2000. The accompanying text reflects on the demise of the coal industry and the challenges faced by mining communities at the turn of the millennium alongside memories of her Father who became terminally ill as a result of dust inhaled during his working life.
