23. September 2002 Photography
Colin Jones followed an unusual path into photography, having been a dancer with the Royal Ballet until his late 20s. While on tour in the north of England he began to take pictures of the mining communities and it was not long before he had given up dancing to begin his new career, landing a job at the Observer alongside photographers such as Philip Jones Griffiths and Don McCullin. Jones' subjects are working people: miners, shipbuilders, dockers and dancers. This rigorous monograph assimilates Jones' best work to date. Timelessly captivating, it is a revealing tale of industrial post-war Britain, and a moving portrait of poverty and physical hardship endured with dignity.

'A wonderful evocation of ways of life that will never be the same again.' (Amateur Photography) 'An exceptional record of the old industrial world.' (Independent on Sunday)


A grafter is English slang for hard worker, with the implication of long hours and hard physical labour. Formerly a professional ballet dancer, it was among his colleagues that Colin Jones began to take photographs and through dancing that he learnt of the tremendous physical labour involved in creating something of beauty. This is an empathetic tale of industrial post-war Britain. Jones' subjects are people who endure physical hardship with dignity - miners, shipbuilders, dockers and ballet dancers. It is a collection of Jones' best work from the early 1960s to the present day and is a poignant study of manual workers and working class families at the end of the industrial era in Britain, from miners cramped and soaking against a two-foot coal seam, dockers waiting in gangs on the docks for work, shipbuilders unaware that they are labouring on the yard's last vessel as well as the un-glamourous sweat and toil of his colleagues at the Royal Ballet. "Grafters" shows the crumbling slums of the East End and now-dead miners' villages in the Northeast, holidays on the pier and in seaside boarding houses and the desperate scavenging for coal on a slag heap.

It is a nostalgic portrait of poverty and physical hardship endured with dignity.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Honest and proud 20. August 2003
Von Mr Niall P Mills - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
So many thought provoking images, it makes you realise how tough life was for many people only a couple of decades ago. More ironic is the fact that some of the images are from the early 1990's and they sit very easily alongside the images from the 1960's. The whole book is fascinating, there is not a single image that looks contrived.
It's difficult to summarise the overall impresssion you get from this book, it's probably one of pride and as the title says 'graft' - it's not at all depressing or grim, quite the opposite in fact. However, it does make you realise that our comortable, modern world is lacking in opportunity for real grafters, more is the pity.
