West Virginia Coal
This series is a documentation of a six month investigation into where the supply at the Baltimore coal terminal comes from. I traveled down to the southern mountain ranges of West Virginia and documented the surface coal mines from the air and the ground.
I wanted to investigate the extraction of coal from all angles through drawing, photography, video, interviews with coal miners, as well as environmentalists. I chartered a flight over active and reclaimed mines but also walked along the smallest streams that are changing because of the coal industry. I also toured Baltimore Coal Power Plants and documented the Baltimore Coal Terminal.
