The shadows of a mother and child are cast on a shack in Marikana's Nkaneng township in Rustenburg, where many mine workers live, 62 miles northwest of Johannesburg. Taken on August 15, 2013, a year after South Africa's bloodiest post-apartheid labor incident awoke the world to the potential for unrest in the country's mines.
