*‘In January 2006 I started to photograph terrils or slagheaps in Belgium, France, Germany, Poland and Wales. For this project I developed a variation on the carbon printing process. I took a bit of coal from every mountain. I ground this coal into a pigment that I used to make photographic paper. The object of the photo, the mountain, has become one with the subject of the photo, the print itself.’
