Portraits of mountain folk 2019/20


of mining folk

Over the centuries, mining has marked not only the landscape, but also the people who live in the central Alpine regions. The exhibition takes as its starting point photos of mountain dwellers who, in recent centuries, have worked in the mines at Ridnaun/Schneeberg and Prettau, presenting these as portraits along with brief biographies. Images, text and a video are combined to bring to life the entrepreneurs, miners and women who all worked in the industry.
