Photographer's Note

In my region for more than 2000 years iron ore is mined and iron is processed. The professions of miner and steelworker were very reputable for centuries.
In the sixties of the last century the last mine was closed among other things because of the worldwide competition of ore with a higher content of iron.
Still today there's one of the biggest German steelworks in my city, Siegen.

In 1902 two monuments were created which still today remind people of these professions which were guarantors of an reliable living and prosperity.

My picture shows the monument of the steelworker. The miner's monument you can see in the workshop.
I photographed the two at night - in both professions night shifts were common ...

They are affectionately named Henner (the miner) and Frieder, in "proper" German Heinrich (Henry) and Friederich (Frederic).

You can seen the monuments in the day here.
