„Shed door“

from the gallery of Marjolein Katsma

Near Marakkanam, just a little north of Pondicherry, there are extensive salt pans where salt is produced in shallow ponds by letting the sea water evaporate.

Near the mounds of salt under their reed covers was a little building, constructed from wood frame, with 'planks' made of woven palm leaves fastened to it with sticks and hand-made rope. The only thing not organic here is the little metal padlock on the door.
