    Photo-Documentary: Coal Mining in Appalachia →

    Photographer, Les Stone, has been¬†photographing the coal industry for the past 3 years in McDowell County. There are some really beautiful photos on the blog. It seems there is a new project about coal mining coming out of West Virginia on a daily basis ( and there has been for the past 50 years). Growing up in a coal-mining family I believe it is time that we start sharing stories from West Virginians who aren’t coal miners. Hollow will focus on the MANY other people—artists, students,¬†entrepreneurs, teachers—and unique characteristics that make up the communities across Southern West Virginia.
