photopage gasometer

Black and white photograph of a man walking past a gasometer in Consett in County Durham in the late 1970s.
I took this photograph in 1979 as part of a series of impressions of the north of England.  I was photographing in Consett in County Durham when I noticed the juxtaposition of the man and the gasometer.  I saw it as a visual statement about the uneasy relationship we have with a world driven by industry.
