Photographer's Note

Two girls at Steung Mean Chey garbage dump in Phnom Pehn. Just a scene from their daily life.

They probably live near the dump, there is a lot of small wooden houses around. They probably help their parents and their parents are probably somewhere around. They carry sacks on their backc and put things they find there... that is what I have noticed being there. Also I noticed that those kids are ordinary kids, you see smiles on their faces, they laugh, they play, great kids... But sometimes you can see something sad in their faces. I think they grow up faster than other kids.

I know thet some people from Non-Governmental Organizations help those local people working and living there. I met two French girls, they were working at Steung Mean Chey, they told me about this place.
