To the current issue

Living in Jharia is more like surviving: people make a living in the illegal coal trade, constantly putting their lives at risk due to the nature of the terrain.
Stefano Schirato

Influenced by photographers Gilles Peress, James Nachtwey and Paolo Pellegrin, the Italian photographer, Stefano Schirato, set out for India, to document in photographs the inhuman conditions at the coal mines there. In this interview, he shares how he came to deal with this subject and the challenges he had to overcome over there.
