These images, which form the third and final volume of Myers’ work, were taken between 1981 and 1988 in the ‘Black Country’, an area of England famous for steel production.

During the early 1980s, metal manufacturing suffered a violent crisis, which resulted in high levels of unemployment. Foundries and steel mills were quickly transformed into housing estates, business areas or business parks.

The end of Industry documents the rapid and irreversible change that led the landscape created by the Industrial Revolution to disappear.
