Living In The Shadow Of An Erupting Volcano

SUBSCRIBE to the Barcroft network:

   THESE shocking images shows the harsh reality of life in the shadow of an erupting volcano. An estimated 30,000 people were displaced from their homes after Mount Sinabung on the Indonesian island of Sumatra started erupting on June 2, 2010 – after 400 years of laying dormant. Officials have placed the 2,460-metre volcano under a high risk warning ever since, with eruptions continuing on a periodic basis. Many villages on the volcano’s slopes are now almost empty as many residents abandon their homes to seek refuge in temporary shelters. The images were shot in June 2015 by professional photographer Sutanta Aditya – who lost two friends in the major eruption of February 2014.
