On holiday in Thailand we came across salt "harvesting" where after being formed through evaporation the salt was scraped into piles to dry and then carried to a large mound to await collection. All done by hand. The weather was hot, and with reflection from the salt unbearable.
I wanted to try and capture the harshness of that world, so I have cropped out what didn't seem essential and done a fairly aggressive B&W transformation. C&C would be very welcome - do the pictures convey anything to you?
