I’m pleased to announce the release of my first photography book, Spillers’ Downfall — a self-published series of images documenting the demolition of Spillers Mill here in Newcastle upon Tyne.
“…a set of images that are both strangely beautiful and undeniably awesome.” — Rob Meddes, The Crack
I affectionately named this iconic building The White Cliffs of Byker after cycling past it for some eight years.
I’ve photographed it on so many occasions, building up a library of nearly five hundred images in the process. Sadly, the last six months of 2011 became a record of its demolition.
Spillers’ Downfall forms a special selection of those photographs.
