This photo was entered into the 2017 National Geographic Photographer of the Year Contest. It was taken by Azim Khan Ronnie in Bogra Rajshahi, Bangladesh. The caption reads: “Countless chilli peppers surround labourers in the Bogra district in the north of Bangladesh. More than 2,000 people work in almost 100 chilli farms in Bogra to supply local spice companies for use in their recipes. Chilli peppers are a major part of the  Bengali cuisine popular in Bangladesh and are used as part of a combination of spices for various meat dishes including chicken and beef.” They, of course, are curries.
