Photos tell story of the darkest chapter in Wales's history
IT is one of the darkest chapters in Wales's recent history.
The miners' strike of the 1980s caused thousands of workers in South Wales to defend their industry and jobs in a divisive period of unrest.
One man who had a front row-seat in the year long dispute was national newspaper photographer and now Gower College Swansea lecturer Roger Tiley.
And now, nearly 30 years on, Mr Tiley wants to hear from miners and their families who would be interested in being part of a new exhibition.
"In 1982 I was at college in Newport on a photography course," he said.
"A picture editor came down from London and saw one of projects I was doing. He asked if he could publish it and then asked if I would like to come to London.
"I felt very lucky, it was like a dream come true and I worked for the Times and Sunday Times and Observer and Guardian.
"Anyway, I have just finished a major commission from the Arts Council of Wales and I was tidying through some things when I came across some old photographs from the Valleys in about 1984.
"I wanted to know what these guys and their families are doing now.
"I have approached the National Library of Wales and they asked if I would like to put on an exhibition in 2015.
"If anyone knows of any miners and their families then please get in touch."
