The Afar nomads, who are mainly devoted to the extraction of minerals, live in one of the most inhospitable places on earth, with very little vegetation and temperatures that can reach 120° F degrees.
Here a portrait of Kedir Hydera Adbera, 65, from Hamed Ela. He worked as a salt cutter for 46 years.
