Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world, it has been heavily deforested. The deforestation has been to clear land for an expanding population to have access to land to grow subsistence crops and also to make charcoal, which is the main cooking fuel in Malawi. This shot shows men working barefoot and moving massive tree trunks by hand in a logging camp on the Zomba Plateau.
