Amazon unpacked...

Thanks to Ben Hennig for the tipoff to a rather wonderful photography project from Ben Roberts.

It describes the impact of the arrival of Amazon into the town of Rugeley:a former mining town. The arrival promised employment for some of the residents. Read the essay and look at the images to find out more.
Some years ago, I used to use a resource that was produced by Emma Johns on the Amazon warehouse which opened near Milton Keynes.

The warehouse is a building which I have passed many times on my travelling over the last few years.

I haven't reproduced any of Ben's images, but will be requesting permission to do that.
In the meantime, head over to the website and have a look yourself.

UPDATE
Permission granted by Ben to feature his images for educational use....
Thanks Ben :)
