UrBC, Yekaterinburg, August 24, 2018. EVRAZ Holding opened a Miners’ Dynasties Photo Exhibition in Mezhdurechensk in celebration of the upcoming Miner’s Day, the holding’s press service reports.

There are twenty photographs in the exhibition altogether, featuring families of Kuzbass miners from Mezhdurechensk, Novokuznetsk, and Malinovka; the photos were taken by Pavel Markelov and Denis Rassokhin. The collection is now housed by the city’s Exhibition Hall.

The people in the photographs are six labor dynasties: the Kutzes from Raspadskaya-Kokskovaya Mine, the Titovs and the Shulakovs-Shirokovs from Raspadskaya Mine, the Zmaznevs from Uskovskaya Mine, the Noskovs from Abashevskaya Plant, and the Smirnovs from Alardinskaya Mine. Their accumulated work record comes to over five hundred years.

‘Generational continuity is crucial to our member companies, since this is a way to preserve the best work practices and accumulate and share valuable experience. Labor dynasties are also a sign of a business’s stable performance and the workers’ confidence in their secure future,’ says EVRAZ Holding’s Vice President and Raspadskaya Coal Company’s Director-General Sergey Stepanov.

The labor dynasties representatives, Mezhdurechensk locals, and a number of photographers took part in the solemn opening ceremony. The exhibition will be open through the end of October.

The exhibition is also part of EVRAZ’s Steel Dynasties Digital Project that is being implemented in cooperation with the online news service lenta.ru.
