Making Sugar, 1978


One of the men working at the factory said to me:
"If you could get the noise. If the photograph could open up and you could hear the noise."

It is left to Micky Allan to present the concept of the factory as bleak, cluttered, congested and uncaring. The smudged velvety prints recall Victorian Industrial Revolution conditions, and the classic image of man, as victim of the machine.
