Shepherds

We stopped often for flocks of sheep, people picking cotton by hand, harvesting sugar beets by hand and a whole range of other rural activities. These three men were all shepherds, two were moving their large flock down the highway to different pastures and the old man was looking after a few sheep under the fruit trees near his home.

Women in the Fields

This group of women were working in the fields of sugar beet. It was harvest time and the women sat on the ground, cutting the leaves off the beets, with lethal looking knives and throwing them onto piles, ready to be loaded onto the trailers, to be taken to the mill. Rural Eastern Turkey still uses intensive human labor when it comes to harvesting time, whether it’s sugar beet, cotton or pomegranates.
