The images were produced at the Saar mine in the period between April and September 2012. They show a mine shaft from four different perspectives: View from the conveyor cage upwards, view from the conveyor cage of the wall whizzing past, view of miners in the conveyor cage and view of the hoist operators on the wire rope hoist. The speed at which the conveyor cage plunges into the depths (eight to twelve metres a second) is particularly apparent here.
