About this image

This image records a sparse playground in Lee Moor village, located in Plymouth and is from a series of images that document the surrounding areas of some of Devon and Cornwall’s china clay pits.

Encapsulating the vanishing industry of the china clay pits, and the small communities that are slowly diminishing with it, I focused on capturing some of the abnormalities of everyday living in these places, documenting the time-worn areas in a deadpan aesthetic.
