Portraits of Charcoal Factory Workers

Recently I shot a series of portraits of workers at a charcoal factory. The photos were shot using the Leica M with the 35mm Summicron ASPH. I had the intention to use also the a 50mm focal length lens but due to the dusty environment inside the factory I decided not to change lens. (Click the image for sharper resolution)

  1. This is a great series. Very sensitive light and dealing with other humans regardless of race and occupation. You must be doing something right to have their trust. Where is the location? Most people in the world, enjoying their BBQ would never imagine where charcoal comes from, not that they don’t care. There is a bog pile of logs and where do these come from?

    1. Hi,
      Thanks for your comments. This place is at Kuala Sepetang in the state of Perak, Malaysia. People there are very friendly, they allow photographers to photograph their daily work routine. The logs are from Mangrove Tree. It is the main source of material to make into charcoal.
