Deeply Rooted is a documentary photography project about the Sorbian minority in Germany during a crucial period of its history: the structural change brought about by the closure of lignite open cast mines by 2038. During this period, important decisions will be made that will affect the cultural preservation of this minority’s language and traditions.
For over two years, I have been documenting Sorbian people and their efforts to keep their culture alive. The Sorbian minority is one of four official minorities in Germany.
