Photographer's Note

I had to wake up early to catch the ragpicker women. Fortunately, for me..they work near where I was staying, making it very easy to fall out of bed to go and see them. This would be around 5am. They would wake up at 3/4am to make it here for 4.30/5am. Also, fortunately for me, I did not have to go and feed children and attend to household duties upon my return from "rag picking duty". It would be near impossible to see them after 9am, as they slip away into alleys, office blocks and residential blocks to collect their daily wages. Women from other areas work throughout the night, so there is sometimes little rubbish to be collected.
