Keith Pattison spent six months at the height of the Miners’ Strike of 1984–85 living in the Durham coastal village of Easington Colliery and photographing the people there as events took shape. With the increasing determination of the government to break the strike and force miners back to work, he witnessed from the inside a community laid siege by the state.
Twenty-five years later, on Election Day 2010, Pattison took the writer David Peace to Easington to interview three of the people caught up in the strike – Alan Cummings, Marilyn Johnson and her husband Jimmy. Their memories, still freshly felt, make explicit the anger, pain, resilience and warmth captured in the photographs.
