In 2014 I met the author of the Facebook page ‘Coalville Photographed’. His name is Graham Ellis. Over the course of the following two years I made a series of short films and photographs, observing him, as he moved through the post-industrial landscape of North West Leicestershire - the landscape which we both coincidentally call home. - Christopher Mear.

This image here links to a recent interview with Christopher regarding his zine and thoughts now his work is complete. The 8 images below link to the videos in the Coalville Photographed series that were released via the Photograd Blog. 

Copies of Coalville Photographed are on sale via Christopher's website.
