Entry Title: "Dark Matter"

Entry Description: This photo essay is covering the regular working day of the oil-shale
miners. I tried to truthfully convey the environment and working
conditions in the underground. These are real situations, shot with
minimal additional lightning.
The outcome is on one hand a tribute to the miners' tough profession
and on the other hand a trip out of comfort zone for the rest of us. I
remember this noisy, dusty darkness and the people working there
every time I plug anything to the electric grid.
