Having a passionate curiosity about people, German artist and photographer Michael Wolf began his career as a photojournalist. For his final exam as a student, Wolf submitted a series of photographs taken in the coal mining town of Bottrop-Ebel, located in Germany’s Ruhr District, over the course of continuous visits he made to the area in 1976. In the various images of the town’s inhabitants and their everyday lives – celebrating, socialising, playing, working – he captures not only a sense of normalcy, but also the region’s gradual economic decline, already pervasive just under the surface. Features more than 100 pages of photos and an epilogue by Sigrid Schneider.
