A colour photograph of Barry Leadbitter who was a production mechanical-charge engineer at Kellingley colliery.
In 2012, Anton Want recorded workers at Kellingley Colliery as part of a project “Pit Profiles: Re-profiled”. The project was inspired by the work of artist H. Andrew Freeth, who was commissioned by the National Coal Board to visit collieries and draw and talk to miners across the coalfields. The resulting images and interviews appeared in Coal Magazine, the NCB’s newspaper.
The photograph was taken in 2012, three years before the colliery closed.
