Towards the southern tip of the Pothohar plateau near along the salt range lies a row of mountains slowly being eaten away by man. I was lucky enough to witness this activity while I was a part of the Canvas gallery Pioneer Art residency which took place at the Pioneer cement factory in Khushab.
Two different, but very important activities happen behind the factory beside the base of the mountain
1)  Workers from the cement factory blow up parts of the mountain range to collect raw material for creating cement.
2) Hundreds of trucks of coal are unloaded here every week to be burned in the kiln of the factory.
These processes are happening on a massive scale multiple times a week.
