Anandabazar Dump Yard

As Anadabazar dump yard is the largest dumping station of Chittagong, Bangladesh, hundreds of under-aged children from poor families work there as a collector of recycling stuffs. Their parents receive roughly $20 a month for 8-10 hours labor which is literally equivalent to their school hours. Despite they are getting nothing from life, they are contributing to their families to the best of their abilities. In this project I tried to capture some moments of those little angels, who are growing up with love and hope sprouting with all the odds. They are like flowers pushing through cracked pavement in this urbanized life style.
