"Home Among Black Hills" is a photo book by Swedish photographer Jens Olof Lasthein. Lasthein grew up in Denmark and studied at the Nordic Photography School in Stockholm from 1989 to 1992. While working as a freelance photographer for magazines, newspapers, and other media, he has been working on personal projects for a long time and presenting the results in books and exhibitions. He has also held exhibitions in Sweden, Denmark and Italy. This book was published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Photo Museum in Seoul, and is a photo collection with the theme of the Belgian city of Charleroi. From the 19th century to the 20th century, Charleroi was known for its coal mines and iron manufacturing, and many immigrant workers poured in.However, as the industry has changed, the ironworks are now closed, and the large metals produced from unnecessary rocks during mining are now closed. Botayama shows the prosperity of the time. This book is a book that documents the current state of Charleroi (and the people who live there), along with the ups and downs of industry and its heritage, similar to Ken Domon's ``Chikuho Children''.
