Nyani Quarmyne

Songhor, Ghana

A family harvesting salt from one of their 'atsiakpo' pans in Songor Lagoon. Traditionally the Ada people, who have long made their livlihoods from salt production, worked co-operatively but the 'atsiakpo' pans are privately owned and their proliferation has lead to inequality and the growth of a wealthy elite who employ others to do their labour. The resultant labouring class are trapped in poverty while their employers grow wealthy.
