The Coal People project devoted to miners of Russian Siberia and the Far East. Photographer Maxim Marmur spent more than three years working on the project. The book consists of two parts—White and Black. This kind of division splits narration about the miner's surroundings on “above” and “under.” To reach the underground, the spectator has to force himself to physically flip the book upside down.
