    Sulfur Mining in East-Java
  • I came as a tourist and I left with images in my head and in my camera which haven't stopped bothering and fascinating me since then.

    A stunning landscape in yellow, gray and blue and tremendously hard working miners, ruining their health for $5 a day.
    For us to vulcanize rubber, bleach sugar, fertilize flowers...

    The discrepancy between a most beautiful scenery and a relentless exploitation of labour just makes the injustice of our global economic management even more apparent.
