Bergslagen, the area I live in is an old mining district. Through the ages mining and other metal industry have been the heart and soul of the area. The area is now changing and what was once a triving buisness is have disappeared gradually over a long time.
I visited the Stripa mine this summer, an old mine- industry close to Lindesberg this summer. I like the old and especially the industry old. For me it was a gold mine of old Swedish steel industry history.
At the moment this is what my photoproject is about. I am digging deep in old articles about Swedish mill history and the effect on the small communities in Sweden. Heartbreaking stories and strong opinions follow in the footsteps of the economic crisis, I assure you.
