After Coal travels to Romania.

After Coal author and director Tom Hansell will present to the Appalachians / Carpathians: Mountains Apart, People Connected conference at Transylvania University in Brasov, Romania October 7, 2019.

During the conference, delegates will travel to Romania’s Jiu Valley, the site of the nation’s last coal mine, which shut down in 2018. Hansell will present his work on the After Coal project alongside Romanian photographer Gabriel Amza, who has documented the decline of coal mining in the Jiu Valley for more than a decade. You can learn more about Amza’s work in this interview with Lomography Magazine
