After the Coal Dust book by John Gill and Bridget Gill

After the Coal Dust records moments in time.
Each image tells a story. Each photograph is absolutely complete.
This is not an easy task for any photographer. The Gills’ unique book is not about despair but about survival, acceptance, and emotional understanding.
You find yourself taking time over each page, drinking in the light and shade of the scene in front of you. Perhaps, as a photographer, wishing that you could have captured that image.
The fact is that this is one of the very best books of photography to come to the table. An outstanding production: the beautiful images carefully edited and thoughtfully chosen.
