Kawah Lien by Olivier Grunewald
Photographer Olivier Grunewald several visits to the mine for the extraction of sulfur in the crater of the volcano Kawah Lien in East Java, Indonesia. He brought with him the necessary equipment to capture surreal images lit by moonlight, torches and a blue flame of burning sulfur. Miners in the crater first raised at 2600 meters, then descend to the shore 200-meter crater lake of sulfuric acid, where they get chunks of pure sulfur and carry them back to the weighing station. We present our photos of these brave miners working under the cover of night.
