Portraits of Kawah Ijen

Deap in Kawah Ijen volcano, lies the most acid lake in the world. There we can discover an open pit sulfur mine where miners come to risk their life to quary sulfur. 

Twice a day, they go down to the volcano to harvest huge blocks of sulfur they have to cary back to the factory. They carry almos 90kg of rocks on each trip, for around 10€/day. ​​​​​​​
