Industrial Quarry, Victoria Roberts

9 January, 2019

Large scale black and white images show the magnitude of an industrial quarry and how it disrupts the surrounding landscape. A quarry can have multiple impacts on the environment; visual intrusion, dust, damaged landscape, loss of land and a deterioration in water quality.

Created in response to the Frequency Festival 2019 theme, ‘Disruption=Cultural Reinvention’, Robert’s photographs put the often-unearthly quarry landscapes front and centre, while her captions explore the work the industry is doing to restore this land to agriculture or woodland.
