Payatas in Manila, Philippines where a mountain of garbage rises among the buildings and shacks in this part of the capital. The inhabitants make their living recycling everything and I mean everything, even sorting through the food that has been thrown away. It’s of course frustrating and sad to see how these people live among garbage, but also fascinating to realize how they find a living and survive doing this. The dump closed down it’s activity a few years ago but trucks still come to the neighborhood and dump their load on the streets so that the locals can start going through it all.
