No soil, no water, but hundreds of thousands of birds.

A barren rock island off the coast of Peru. No soil, no water, but hundreds of thousands of birds. For ten years only two guards have been allowed to live on Guañape Sur. In the eleventh year though, hundreds of workers arrive for the harvest of the birds' excrement. An extraordinary sight. Reminiscent of the photography of Salgado.
