The photographic series LAKE ROSE depicts the exploitation of Lake Retba, a pink-coloured saltwater lake. Seeking a better life, people from Senegal and neighbouring countries come to the lake and extract the salt in order to sell it at the market. This work entails poor working conditions and results in environmental pollution. >>
