Lovely portraits. The atmosphere they work in must be very dry and dusty.

@Jenny: Many thanks... the whole plain where the brick kilns are located are deep posits of loess - fine wind-blown sediment. It just gets picked up by the wind and blows around, hence the googles... its worse for the workers as they are digging it to make the bricks.
