VIETNAM #205

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Salt workers work hard under the blazing sun on the salt fields. “The number of grains of salt crystallised in the ponds is equal to the number of beads of sweat on salt workers’ shirts.”

They are low paid workers and their jobs depend on the weather. The climate is becoming less predictable than before and the rain is causing problem as there is no work when the sun is not shining as the salt fields cannot dry. This means they have to find other jobs in order to put rice on their plates.

Your images and descriptions of this back breaking work give us much to think about, Jean-Noel.

I think V2 really tells the story of the long hard day these women experience.

Two more excellent shots Jean Noel. We in this country do not realise how hard some other countries people have to work, just to put food on the table.
