John Pascoe was an official war photographer on the home front during the Second World War and his commitment to social realism produced a series of sombre and gritty images mixed with more celebratory moments. Pascoe took a series of photographs at the coal mining settlement of Denniston on the West Coast, which have become a valuable record of life in that community at the time.
