Children and Adults at Steung Meanchy Landfill. Phnom Penh. Landless people from the countryside looking for work in PP find that there is little choice but to scavenge at the landfill. Families have lived on the side of this moving village for many years. Though the conditions are retched and seriously polluted with lead and toxic chemicals these migrants have found a way to survive. The government has contunued to clear these villages at the dump but they keep returning. Days after photographing there the police set fire the community that lived inside the landfill.
