Photographer's Note

A massive landfill in Nanjing's northern Jiangning District dominates the landscape, with hills of city dwellers' waste rolling into the distance and the smell of decay in the air. This landfill is almost filled to capacity - it will only be able to serve the city for another year or so before a new location must be found.

A sad sight: There are still some rural residents living around this active landfill, where they continue to subsistance farm on the severely polluted land just outside the gate.
