Jindrich Streit... The Village is a Global World. "...These photographs are drawn form the work of Czech documentary photographer Jindrich Streit, produced during his visit to South West Durham in Spring 1995. He was invited to offer an outsider's eye on villages, which have lost their original, mining-related, identity. Since the West Durham pit closures of the 60s and 70s, villages like Bearpark, Witton Park and Tow Law have experienced a slow transition towards an uncertain future. Rookhope, towards the top of Weardale, is experiencing a similar fate after its lead and fluorspar mining past ended during the same period."
