Welder at the ship breaking yard

In Mumbia’s ship breaking yard, men take boats apart by hand and recycle the components. Often, boats only sit around for a few months until they are patched up or taken apart completely. There is no large scale equipment besides one crane. All the work is done by the hands of the yard’s men. The community of the ship breakers lives next to the harbor in correlated metal homes.
