During 2013 photographer Clive Egginton began his residency at TSL Turtons, a spring making factory in Sheffield. As “Archivist in Residence” he worked alongside the men in the factory, documenting their day to day life and working methods.
Clive visited regularly over a period of several months, building up an extensive archive of documentary images and large format portraits. As the project progressed it became apparent that the factory would also provide a compelling subject for a short documentary film and to this end Clive invited his friends Nathan Gibson and Marcus Sarko to collaborate. Filming throughout the winter of 2013 and into the new year the three gradually brought together the 15 minute portrait “Factory Floor”.
