Friday Photo (55): Photos from Industry – Man Operating Machinery at a Mine in China

Man Operating Machinery at a Mine in Anhui Province, China

There are many large mining operations covering Anhui Province, China. They tend to have limited safety regulations. The mines can ruin the landscape, cause pollution and can be dangerous places for people to work. However, this primary industry is fuelling China’s rapid growth and development.

Our Friday Photo series will be focused on ‘industry’ for the following few weeks. If you have any photos from time spent working in industry, that do not breach company copyright regulations, then please get in touch and we will publish them on our blog!
