Iptc.CaptionPotash extraction for agricultural use was an important factor in the industrial development of southern Alsace. The Rodolphe mine was built in 1913 during german occupation, extraction ceased in 1974 and the site was abandonned until it's reconversion as a museum in 2004. This photographic essay was built as a journey of discovery from the outskirts to the heart of the main building, mixing the graphic stength of monochrome prints with the subtle hues of the colors present in this amazing scenery.
