Hammerhead Capture

To me, this photo captures the stark inequalities that inhabit our world. The men carry a hammerhead shark to the 'killing fields' (a place between the sand dunes where fins are removed, meat is divided), whilst a luxury lodge forms the backdrop of the photograph. Taken in Southern Mozambique.
