I was sent by The Independent, along with a writer, to meet Gerald Haynes, the last free miner in the Forest Of Dean.
Free miners are allowed to mine and sell any coal, iron, ochre and stone under a royal charter dating back some 800 years. But it’s hard, dirty work. And lonely. Gerald spent six days a week on his own down there with no phone signal, no radio to listen to (radio signals don’t travel well under ground), and in darkness.
His thick Gloucestershire accent was difficult to understand. As we chatted he lit up his pipe, pondered a question and there was the best shot from the assignment.
C-type prints are notable for their continuous tone and vibrant colours. The first widely used colour print process, modern c-type prints are printed from high resolution digital files produced from drum-scanned negatives or transparencies.
C-type prints use dye-based photographic papers and should not be confused with inkjet, or giclée prints. Read more about C-type printing HERE.
