Hundreds of thousands of clay bricks are neatly piled up, baking in the 40 degree heat of a vast factory yard. Hard bricks are stacked up, awaiting collection, whilst raw bricks are hauled down to a nearby furnace - where they are baked 100,000 at a time - at the 'Brick Kiln' in Isfahan, Iran.

Workers, who are immigrants from neighbouring Afghanistan, spend 12 hours a day, using everything from tractors to wheelbarrows, transporting the bricks to the furnace.
