2016 - Salty dreams at Lac Retba, Senegal
Working conditions in Lac Retba, around 40 kms north from Dakar, Senegal are tough. Everyday, around 1,500 women and 2,000 men work during eight hours with the only help of sticks, shovels and plastic buckets to collect up to 1.5 tonnes of salt per wooden canoe. From dawn to sunset.
