Photographer's Note

Following my captures of “Salinas Grandes” (salt flat), I add now the human touch

The Place
At the opposite side of the route there are men working, carving blocks of salt, they made sculptures that are “on sale” at a table, made of salt as is the tool over which this man is working

Round them, all is salt, it covers the earth floor and also the wall behind the worker is formed by layers of salt, in fact it’s a restaurant all of salt made
They (the workers) form an strange scene, all protected from the fragments of salt and the heavy light

The photo
Photos or talk to the workers is strictly forbidden, but I managed, half hidden by a friend to steal this one, I never knew if the man is furious or, as it seems to me, he is showing his work

The funny fact is that he is seated on a sac of sugar
