This garbage dump, located in Manila, Philippines, is known as Smokey Mountain due to frequent fires caused by decomposing trash. It is also home and work to hundreds of men, women, and children. The residents of Smokey Mountain hunt through the garbage for food or items that they can recycle at the local junk shops. There are no government-sponsored services available and they are often overlooked by their nation's leaders. Brian Carlson's photographs offer a sensitive portrait of the individuals who make their living off the discarded waste of Manila and make their homes amidst the rubble.
