Sulphur mining in an active volcano

With sulfur dust in his hair and covering the pores of his skin, he will work as cheap labor continues for the value of sulphur. This man will make less than 20 Euros by the end of the day.
There's no ending for the need of sulfur, like there is no care for the conditions of the workers that haul ththe sulfur up a narrow pass over unstable rocks that sometimes give way. To fall is to become cripple if unlucky. Better to die and end the suffering and life in a world of non existing care. For little pay it is still a good job in comparison to other physical labor jobs in Indonesia.

    Your photos are very critical. I really like it. Your photos and content have been clamoring for it to look. You're a good photographer in my eyes.
    Greetings Ilona
