Photographer's Note

The smoking house at Tanji, Gambia, along the Atlantic coast. The people smoke Bungafish here.

Nearly a mission impossible to go inside this building - but the lighting was so great for photography. I remember that my eyes were full of tears and I felt to be inside of a chimney. I can't descibe how hot it was here. In addition the smell of the fish at the whole area, not only in the house - everywhere. Really no fun for european noses.

In the WS could see how the fishes are sun-dried before.
