“I am fascinated by the work of these women, their gestures and their ability to exploit this natural resource with the most rudimentary means in such harsh conditions. By observing the culture of salt harvesting in this small village, I cannot help but see, yet again, a relation of the dominant vs dominated between men and women, as it so often happens in our cultures. In this village, women are the kingpins of the business, and can be exploited by their own husbands. But people have started realizing what this job means, which may pave the way for another distribution of the roles.”
