About "Orpaillers, Guinea"

This shot is of artisanal miners in Guinea, west africa, the majority of which are women and children. The conditions under which they work and live are an eye-opener of note, The work they do is extremely dangerous, and there are fatalities daily.
I love this pic; it reminds me of an ant hill, but when one looks closer, one gets a wake-up call.

About Karl

Karl Schoemaker

People often ask me why I took a particular photograph, or what I was thinking at the time, and even what the picture means to me. My answer to this: I am not gonna throw some esoteric **** at you, or go into some pseudo 'acid induced' diatribe of what I was feeling at the time.
I am just a normal guy, married with two kids, who loves what he sees around him. I want to share the beauty of our planet, and how I see it, with you.

What do my pictures mean to me? Like any art out there, I believe that it is more important what the picture means to YOU! What do YOU get out of it, how does it make YOU feel when YOU look at it.
It is not about me.
