CREATIVE DIRECTOR

THE PRICE OF COAL

1

On the 14th October 1913, the small town of Senghenydd, in South Wales, suffered the worst mining disaster in British history. A total of 439 men and boys lost their lives. 

The photographer, W. Benton, captured the tragedy, as it unfolded, and then published the results as a set of postcards, to act as an everlasting memorial.

The Price of Coal brings Benton’s photographs to life, in order to uncover the narrative of this tragedy and reflect upon the hardship that helped shaped a nation.
