      This man spends 6-7 hours a day in water with a salt content close to 40%. In order to protect his skin he rubs himself with "Beurre de Karité" (shea butter, produced from shea nuts obtained from the Shea nut tree), which is an emollient to avoid the skin to burn. The picture is taken in Lac Rose, a pink lake very close to the Atlantic Ocean in Senegal not far away from Dakar. Six days a week he manages to harvest about a ton of salt per day, which is loaded in a small wooden boat.

    Dian Fossey came to the world’s attention for her pioneering studies with gorillas in Africa, and her efforts to stop the poaching of the creatures she came to love. In 1985 Fossey was found dead in her bed at the Karisoke site, with the machete she had confiscated from poachers and hung upon her wall, buried in her skull. No one has ever been prosecuted for her murder though most believe it was the result of the illicit black market and the poaching of gorillas and other protected wildlife.
