Our Beneath (North)
Our Beneath (North) - Ryan Egan is a documentary lifestyle photographer from Cheshire, England who takes interest in bringing to light social and environmental issues through his photography. 'Our Beneath' is a project investigating and documenting historic landfill sites and how they've developed since their closure. Decades ago, waste management wasn't carried out in the same way as it is today. Without being properly sorted and recycled waste was moved into landfill sites without realising or knowing the long-term effects it could have on the land and its surrounding areas. Over time the breakdown of buried waste can create a build-up of harmful gases. Many historic landfill sites have had to be treated over many years or even decades to release possible harmful gases before the land can be developed on or built upon. 'Our Beneath (North)' is the first in a series of four sections; Midlands, South East and South West will be released at a later date.
