Chum Kreal commune is part of three districts in Kampot province, where salt fields can be found, and the only areas in Cambodia to harvest the mineral. The production process starts off with a controlled release of sea water, which spills into bare flatten fields, through an intricate maze of canals and pumps. (Words and Images by Nicolas Axelrod)
