Women Carrying Firewood, Sudan, 2003

Women carry bundles of firewood on their heads in the Sudanese desert. In rural African cultures, the responsibility of foraging for firewood usually falls to the women. In Sudan’s brutally dry desert, where little vegetation grows, it can take several hours each day to collect enough wood to cook with.

顶木柴的女人们,苏丹,2003

苏丹的沙漠里,女人们用头顶着成捆的木柴。在非洲农业文明中,寻找木柴的职责往往落到女人们的身上。在苏丹仅能生长小型植被的野酷沙漠中,搜集足够做饭的木头需要花费几个小时甚至一天的时间。
