Anthracite Ghosts

Walter Dinteman wandered the coal fields of northeastern Pennsylvania from 1970 to 1973, photographic the remains of the anthracite coal industry.  Many of these buildings have long since decayed. Dinteman’s photographs tell the story of beauty amid desolation, recalling the lives the people who lived and worked in the region in its prime.
