Trash walk
A boy walks barefoot through the dump located directly behind the home of Irenio and Saquina.

comments from website visitors:

God they need to be careful, at least wear some shoes while walking through there. My feet cringe looking at this photo.

I really love this image! I especially like the way you juxtaposed the boy’s bare feet with the sandal in the dump. I also like your decision to not show the boys face; the anonymous figure stands in for all the boys and girls who take this walk. Keep up your great work!

What I can say to my family, and my community, is that the most important thing is love, not money. Sometimes they say that they don’t visit us because they have nothing to give us. We need love, not things. Even with money you can still feel alone inside.
