About "Orpaillers, Guinea"
This shot is of artisanal miners in Guinea, west africa, the majority of which are women and children. The conditions under which they work and live are an eye-opener of note, The work they do is extremely dangerous, and there are fatalities daily.
People often ask me why I took a particular photograph, or what I was thinking at the time, and even what the picture means to me. My answer to this: I am not gonna throw some esoteric **** at you, or go into some pseudo 'acid induced' diatribe of what I was feeling at the time.
