The Cornish Americans & The ‘Great Miner’s Migration’.
This year I will be making a documentary story on the ‘Great Migration’ of Cornish miners to the U.S over the 19th and 20th century. I plan to shed light on the reasons for the migration and travel to areas of U.S in the new year to document present day Cornish Americans and the reinvention of Cornish culture.
Here a few images from my first shoot at South Crofty mine, Pool. October 2013.
