Searching For Scraps by AdamCohn.

by Adam Cohn from his “Shipbreaking, Bangladesh” flickr set

“These men trolled the Chittagong shipbreaking sites with long metal rods. They would stab the rods into the muck and listen for telltale sounds that there were scraps of metal under the mud. They’d then dig up the scraps by hand and try to resell them later. These men, barefoot in highly polluted water, were scavenging for scraps of scraps in order to feed their families”
