Diving after gold


Limited edition print, Signed, numbered and embossed.

This is a super high quality giclee print. Giclee prints are the highest quality print that money can buy - the ink is also archival and should resist fading for up to 100 years.

The unique practice of mining gold using a hose and an air compressor, so-called compressor mining, originates from the Philippines as far back as the mid-1990s. It started with fishermen who saw an opportunity to dive deeper and farther to catch fish. This extremely dangerous work is mostly carried out by adult men, but sometimes also by boys. Those who dive for gold risk drowning from lack of oxygen or because of mudslides.
