Wheat and dried chili peppers on the third floor storage area of Namgay and Nalim's house, Shingkhey, Bhutan. The Namgay household owns and rents land scattered in terraced strips through the hillsides near their home, each strip being devoted to one crop: wheat, rice, chilies, or potatoes. Nalim and her daughter Sangay care for the children and work in their mustard, rice, and wheat fields. Namgay, who has a hunched back and a clubfoot, grinds grain for neighbors with a small mill his family purchased from the government. From Peter Menzel's Material World Project.
