John Cutting lives amongst the former industrial coal fields in rural County Durham. Here, he is guided by an uncomplicated yet serious sense of fun. Whilst exploring the numerous nearby abandoned collieries and disused quarries, he identifies and gathers both disregarded engineered objects and natural materials.
