Scorching flames, rising black smoke, beads of sweat streaming down sooty faces, the echoes of men's angry voices and the smell of fuel oil. Since my first visit to Bangladesh in 2012, I have repeatedly visited and photographed the people who make the "screws. They worked in a small, dark, cave-like workshop. There, adults and children worked together to create a cold, hard metal by pouring molten red liquid, like magma, into the pitch black ground mixed with iron sand. It was like watching a creation myth.
Stillness and motion, softness and hardness, light and shadow, regeneration and destruction.
The screw is created using the tremendous labor of the workers as fuel.
I was repeatedly absorbed by the tremendous energy swirling in this small workshop, and I gazed at them as if devouring them.
