Made 30 years ago, this photograph by Irene Rhoden combines a number of concerns, including the decline of heavy industry during the 1970s and increased awareness of the environmental pollution that it caused.
Irene Rhoden attended the Slade Scool of Art, London, from 1974 to 1976 and later completed her MA at the London College of Printing. She has worked as a teacher for much of her career. Between 1990 and 2000 she was commissioned to create a series of official images of the new British Library.
