Kawah Ijen. A Brand New Project by Fabrizio Alessi

BANYUWANGI (ELEPHANT GUN) – Deep in East Java, Indonesia lies Kawah Ijen volcano, 2,600 meters tall (8,660ft), topped with a large caldera and a 200-meter-deep lake of sulfuric acid. The quietly active volcano emits gases through fumaroles inside the crater, and local miners have tapped those gases to earn a living. See a brand new set of powerful images by Fabrizio Alessi featuring the volcano and its miners now on Elephant Gun (750grain.com).
