Ice Cutters

In preparation for the Harbin ice and snow festival, workers use a machine to cut large blocks of ice.

For weeks before the annual winter festival in Harbin, China, workers collect and transport to the site nearly 200,000 cubic metres of ice cut from the frozen Songhua River.

Most of the cutters are farmers from nearby villages who start work before dawn in bitterly low temperatures and earn about US$35 a day.
