Institute 193 presents Coalscapes, an exhibition of photographs by the German-born, Lexington-based photographer Frank Döring.
Döring's photographs document the landscape and culture of the coal-rich Lausitz region of
southeastern Germany. The images in this exhibition track the coal industry’s impact over several years, recording the evacuation and destruction of entire towns, the extraction and incineration of coal, and the eventual reclamation of the land for a wide variety of recreational uses.
