Trash Land by José Ferreira

Portuguese photographer José Ferreira discovered the Huléne garbage dump, not far from the city’s airport in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique. “Trash Land” is a series in which he captures the harsh reality of  the ones living from other people’s waste.

Ferreira says “Despite all the circumstances of how they live, they keep on showing their kindness and happiness and hospitality,” he said. “We don’t find these human qualities in many places in the world.”

“The life we waste everyday because we want a better one or because we are never satisfied with it, is the life that many wish and yearn to have and would give everything to have it.”
