Sunniside

Veronique Lesperat-Hequet

Small South West Durham ex-mining community documented as part of the Unclear Family international photography project at Crook, Co Durham in 1993.

The French photographer joined 12 others from the UK and Europe for three weeks in the West Durham area, documenting the people and their lives in our towns and villages. She chose to work in Sunniside, which she felt encapsulated the story of so many other Durham villages-built for coal, but with a pit long-gone.
