Rubbish Scavengers 6

In some South Asian cities, rubbish dumps are a kaleidoscopic mix of wastes, humans and animals. Locals rear pigs and allow them to feed on organic wastes amongst the rubbish. The pigs are eventually slaughtered, sent to restaurants as food, which in turn are the catalysts for more wastes to be generated. A somewhat ironic cycle of food and waste.
