Ghosts of the Underground

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the closure of Underground Coal Mining in Collie. As a photographer, John Bylund was permitted to photograph Underground in the last few weeks of operation in 1994.

John have kept these images in storage since then, but with the 30th anniversary looming, he decided it was time to share them with the miners, their families and the Collie community.

To commemorate this 30th anniversary, John Bylund has published a book, and will be holding an exhibition entitled “Ghosts of the Underground”. The opening will be at 2pm on Saturday the 4th of May 2024, at the Collie Art Gallery
