Know your Quarry
Samuel Wiles has captured this photographic essay titled 'Know your Quarry' and is a documentation of the vast variety of raw materials being quarried in Kent, United Kingdom. The essay documents three specific sites which are being quarrying and that also distribute these materials. The work shown here are a few selected images from the full series on Wiles' website. Wiles chose specific genres within each site and stuck to this, in particular the workforce who operate the sites and in addition detailed segments of the quarries. The aesthetics of the work have been shot in a topographical form which creates a very static and detailed documentary photo essay.
