Hundreds of independent sulfur miners ascend Kawah Ijen, an active volcano in Indonesia, for very little pay in exchange for the weight of the sulfur they mine each day. Unable to afford safety gear, the miners are completely exposed to the harsh and toxic conditions, breathing in the sulfuric gases and carrying the sulfur on their backs. Here, we follow four of these miners who desperately struggle to support their families and aspire to provide their children with a better future.
