Tom Hegen: Salt Works
The extraction of sea salt is one of the oldest forms of human landscaping. Sea-salt production sites can be found all over the world, usually around shallow shorelines. But we rarely ask where salt comes from and how it is produced. German photographer Tom Hegen (born 1991) has explored these magical landscapes from an aerial perspective, creating spectacular images in the process. This gorgeously illustrated book reveals how the landscape has been shaped by salt mining and how the mining process has created structures that take on an almost painterly, abstract quality.
