High in the mountains of north-east India, the indigenous Khasi eke out a living quarrying stone for shipment to Bangladesh.
The ‘nong shain maw' — a Khasi word meaning 'the people who break the rock' — are paid as little as $2 per day. Mostly, it is elderly women and children who are tasked with this backbreaking and dangerous labour.
Nong Shain Maw: Stone Breakers of the East Khasi Highlands is a medium format photography exhibition that documents life for the Nong Shain Maw as ‘the people who break the rock.’
