The Dangerous Labor of Sulfur Miners in Indonesia

Kawah Ijen is a volcano rich with sulfur that lies in East Java, Indonesia. Sulfur miners hike up to the summit of the volcano, at 8,660 ft. high, to enter the mine in the crater that is brimming with a deep lake of molten sulfuric acid that is 650 ft. deep. French photographer Olivier Grunewald joined some of these miners on their journey to catch a firsthand glimpse of the laborious work put into harvesting the yellow mineral.
