Brick Communities

Nadia District, West Bengal, India.
Mahadev Rojas Torres

Every day of the year excepting the rainy season in remote villages all over India, groups of families gather in communities to make bricks at large factories. Complete generations together take charge of the whole factory production making this work their lifes. This is a view of just one of these factories and its people. (In this image: kids resting over bricks after breakfast).
