Photographer's Note

This is Managua's landfill. It stretches as far as the eye can see, set on a plateau above one of the poorest neighborhoods in the country. Here over five hundred people live, sleep, eat and play. It is not a life they choose out of want, but forced into by circumstance. In the next two weeks, I will post the photo story of this horrible place. This modern day tragety.

A young child plays among the heaps of garabage that he calls home. He plays with the toys that other children deemed unworthy and broken.
