2010. The ubiquitous yellow onion, common to most household kitchens around the world is grown, amongst other places, in the Hanareb region of Azerbaijan. Pickers spend up to fifteen labour intensive hours a day, seven days a week during harvest collecting, cutting and sorting yellow onions for transportation around the globe. These pickers, working in sweltering temperatures earn as little as ten dollars a month. Consider that just one hundred miles away in the opulent capital Baku, oil is so plentiful the wealthy can use it to bathe in. Shot with a Leica M9, 28mm Elmarit, 35mm summicron, 50mm Noctilux.
