Today I was privileged to get a tour of the garbage dump Tondo, home of 1.5 million of Manila’s residents. It was one of the most humbling and disturbing experiences I’ve ever had and I still haven’t processed my experience enough to blog about it yet. For now, the pictures will have to do it justice. So for today, I want to start by showing you some of the faces of the beautiful children that call this trash dump home.
I did get all of my photos up on Smugmug and I must say that they are some of the finest that I’ve ever shot. They’re also graphic and disturbing, but I do think I did a good job of capturing the reality of this place.
