18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Fish Sauce

While many stages photos come out of the Xiapu region of China, the working fish oil factories of the region remain a deeply photogenic but also extremely authentic insight into daily life. The sheer power of the aroma coming from the fish sauce vats was enough to make my eyes run, even at a decent distance.
