Indonesia - Bangka Island - A woman washing tin out of sand and water. The mine where she works  hosts hundreds of workers, from suckers to washers to tin scrappers. The previous night, a miner who had worked all night was carrying two sacks of tin. Police took it when he was coming out of the mine. Sometimes, all the workers are arrested and jailed, and only the owner of the pontoon can redeem them, if he has enough money.
