West Country Modern


Sale price £11.00 Regular price
Rocky is a typology of West Country quarries photographed by Jethro Marshall between 2017 - 2020. The black and white studies reveal environments that are hidden through the rolling hills, dairy farms & polite cottages of the rural idyll. These are landscapes of extraction, sites of industrial intervention which help build the nations urban beating heart. The book is introduced with an essay by Architect & critic, Sam Jacob:

“Quarries are an architecture of subtraction rather than construction. A terrain produced by cutting, slicing, excavating, wedging, blasting, drilling, boring. A landscape of piles, stacks and spoil.”

The quarries are presented as timeless vistas of closed-off British landscape – Epic and local, loose and dimensional, they reveal and remake history with the relentless needs of the modern world.

“The quarry is a form of land art that reveals an interface between the geological realities of the shallow depths of the Earth’s crust and the values of the civilised world.”
