Don't let the rain wash the hills away is long term photography project about my hometown,  Thetford Mines.

For many decades (1890 - 2012), Thetford was one of the biggest asbestos mining hub in the world. 

Today, even years after the last mine closed, Thetford continues to struggle with environmental issues caused by the careless mining practices from the past. Mountains of residue are eroding in the waters of the Bécancour river, causing severe issues to the lakes below. This project is a way to visualize how the town has evolved since the last mine closed down, the relation of the local population and their land, and how people are trying to save the waters of the river.
