Entry Description: The image series belongs to a long term project intending to portray the Children of the Dumpsite with dignity, and as the children they represent, despite their extremely difficult living conditions. They play ,laugh love and live lives like any other children because this is the world they were born into and this is how they imagine their lives should be.
On a daily basis they face illnesses, cough continuously due to the burning of the waste, help their brothers and sisters, struggle to survive by scavenging on a daily basis, and many times obtain their food from the waste.
