Saline e Salinari

PhotographerMassimiliano Balo'
Entry Description

In this project I want to show the hard work of the salt pan worker in the salt extraction from the tanks. I was in the Integral Natural Reserve "Saline di Trapani" where every year in summer the salt is collected. I want to express a great honor to this precious natural element essential for human life.
