In September 2014 I visited Amsterdam to attend Drupalcon and arriving early spent a day at the Stedelijk Museum. Exhibitions included a project within On The Move by Witho Worms and Hans Gremmen
Witho Worms (Amersfoort, NL, 1959) is a photographer who lives and works in Amsterdam. Hans Gremmen (Langenboom, NL, 1976) is a graphic designer who works and lives in Amsterdam.  - See more at: http://www.stedelijk.nl/en/exhibitions/on-the-move/witho-worms-and-hans-gremmen#sthash.2lKS8S6r.dpuf

Around Wigan there were many spoil or slag heaps from the coal industry that once thrived across Lancashire. There is a leisure area known as The Three Sisters reclaimed land from the mining industry. Slag heaps can have a very physical presence over towns and villages.

For some communities these man-made mountains hold memories of a hard family life, of many loves and joys and disaster.

The exhibition of photographs and their book revealed how the coal mining spoil heaps are universal. They look the same and represent the same toil and graft. Whatever the country - risk is risk : dust is dust. In these modern pyramids we see mining as a global phenomenon not just coal and a happenstance of geology and local history. The process of production of the book's prints is fascinating too, saying far more than the images alone as with the socio-politics of this industry.
