Photographer's Note

A group of people move about at the Stung Meanchey dump site in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Stung Meanchey has been much photographed and written about. In 2003, the NY Times did a story about the life of the people who work there. Not much has changed. The famous and brilliant Dakowicz has several great photographs posted here on TE as does Sothy81, ngythanh and fireflyz.

I will be showing some of the current conditions at the dump in the next few days to highlight the fact that change is needed.

Their are many issues regarding this dump site including child labor, dangerous working conditions, recycled plastic and so forth.

Visit the other photographers photos as well and realize that not one of these photos should have been taken. The site should not exist in it's current condition, nor should small children spend their days working in these conditions.
