“Bergwerk Ost” – german coal mine closing
September 30, 2010 § Leave a comment
Before dealing with mining in Bolivia I photographed german coalminers in 2007. There are only a few german coal mines left, and right today the mine where I took the portraits, called “Bergwerk Ost” (Mine East), shuts down.
See german article here.
So, by now the portraits I took there a kind of history.
To all who don’t know the series yet, you find and overview on the whole series here
