Life in the Dumps of Guatemala.

From sun up to sun down countless families live and work in the garbage dumps surrounding Antigua, Guatemala. Mothers with their small children on their backs spend endless hours sifting through the dumps in search of items such as plastic bottles and metal wiring to resell in order to make a meager living. Children as young as 6 spend their days alongside their family searching for these items.
