14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
My Home and my playground.

Upon photographing the livelihood of the people, the dump site is a natural "HOME" to many children that could not afford a decent shelter, education or a simple meal, whereby they will need to help their parents at work, collecting and sorting out garbage. Temporary shelter homes are build along the dump site, children are seen taking bath at a small pool surrounded by garbage. Children are often seen to consume waste or food thrown at the site. It has become a playground for the children living in poverty.
