Post-Industrial Stories is a long-term photography project documenting the effects of deindustrialisation on Romania’s small mining towns. The project is aimed at capturing the atmosphere and the daily life from inside the community.

Romania was heavily industrialized during its 40+ years under Communism. Every town had an industrial center and people were moved all over the country to these areas to work in the mines and factories. The complexes themselves changed the rural landscape completely. During the transition from Communism to a market economy, these mono-industrial areas have been left adrift, without a long-term plan of reconversion.
