Kenyan Journal: Nauseating

Thursday, January 19th: Nauseating

Today I spent a few hours filming inNairobi’s main garbage dump, where hundreds upon hundreds of people sifted through the rotting, stinking, smoldering waste for scraps of food to eat or bits of metal and plastic to sell. Competing with the people for scraps to eat were very large birds that were so big they were taller than most people’s waistline. The images I captured are haunting.

The nauseating stench was horrific. The sight of so many woman and children spending their days this way is truly upsetting. I spoke with and filmed one small boy named Morris who said he was 15 but he appeared much younger.
