This image is part of a series called "Ghost Town". This project was based off of the South Wales town of Port Talbot and its steelworks, and deals with themes of dependency, community and a de-industrialising western world. The Port Talbot steelworks had been in danger of closing down for some time, and if it did there would be major repercussions for the many that work there. This project depicts a grim view of that potential future, depicting a fictional, vacant town based off of the real town of Port Talbot, with imagery based off of old mining towns that suffered after the mine closures during the 1980s. The project was named after a quote from Tony Taylor, a local Port Talbot councillor, which can be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-35161054
