In Australia, mining and energy are one of the most profitable sectors. Workplaces are located in remote areas, and thousands of workers fly in and out (FIFO) every day. They spend between 15 to 25 days working consecutively, during long hours shift. There are some researches regarding the effect of working FIFO in the life of workers and their families. In the worst cases, it can have a devastating effect in the lives of the workers, struggling with mental problems, drug and alcohol consumption and even suicide. I took these images working FIFO, which was a bittersweet experience for me.
