Heat and Dust

Posted · Add Comment

As fierily red as a basket of Jwala Fingers, Azim Kahn Ronnie’s vibrant photograph of chilli pickers in the Bogura district of northern Bangladesh evokes an extreme world of heat and hard work. More than 2,000 people work in almost 100 chilli farms in Bogura, supplying chillies to local spice companies. Chilli peppers are a major part of the Bengali cuisine popular in Bangladesh.

Azim Kahn Ronnie’s photograph came third in the Food in the Field category of this year’s Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition.
