I have seen many photo series on West Virginia and the decline of the economy due the collapse of the coal industry. Especially hard hit is Southern West Virginia. You could almost draw a line across the state and divide it into two sections, the demise and the rise of the economy.
I chose to do a series on the economical growth in Northern West Virginia. I work full time at a Morgantown Architectural firm and have see first hand the local economy growth and construction going on in this region.
It’s a narrative of two West Virginias.
