Summary Explored is a day in the lives of three families living in Araya, an arid peninsula in Venezuela. For centuries since its discovery by the Spanish, the region's salt was collected and stacked into radiant white pyramids. Captured are the breathtaking and unforgettable images from the salineros toiling to build the mountains of salt, a fisherman hauling in huge teeming nets, and a young girl and her grandmother laying 'flowers' of shells on windswept graves. Includes commentary, and more.
