Image caption:

Emanuel Cini, one of the last remaining salt harvesters on the island of Gozo in the Maltese archipelago, stands proudly in front of his rock-hewn salt shop and other salt products. In the background are the salt pans which have been harvested by generations in his family. Beyond is the Mediterranean Sea.
This image conveys the economic dependence of this family from a rapidly vanishing trade that depends solely on the ocean and its welfare.
