Carrying rice on head

Workers create a picturesque display from above as they carry rice from a large drying field in Bangladesh. The workers carry dried rice on their heads in large baskets as they take it to be stored before it is sold. They work 10 hours a day from dawn until the evening. They can carry up to 80kg of rice on their head and are paid the equivalent of $150 a month.
