Guinea. High Guinea's state. Sembakounya (25 km from Dabola). Camp for Sierra Leoneans refugees. Young man with two bricks on his head and another one in his hand. Men are making bricks to build their house. One man can make in a day 100 to 120 bricks out of clay ground. Bricks have to dry one week under the sun before any use. A small family house  (2 rooms ) needs around 800 bricks.  © 2001 Didier Ruef
