Exhibit Title: Cockle Pickers

Location: Ilha de Mare/Bahia, Brazil

Caption: Praia Grande is located twenty minutes by boat from Salvador - the third largest Brazilian city. However, the island feels very isolated indeed. There are no schools, post offices, police stations or even pharmacies. Prices are quite high as everything has to be shipped from the continent. Nobody really knows how many people there are in the island as young men usually leave the village in search of jobs.
