Photographer's Note

Another tribute to the congolese women at work.
This one shows you one of those women working along the Bushimaye river to... crush stones with a hammer.
Building with concrete is a privilege of the very rich in Mbuji Mayi... cement bags come by plane from Kinshasa (2000km away!) and aggregates are produced by these women.
I hope you will appreciate the perfectly calibrated stones they are able to produce with only a very limited waste of fines (there are not many mechanic crushers able to do so).
