Beijing Besieged by Garbage

Changxindian Township, Fengtai District, Beijing

北京市丰台区长辛店镇
Demolition garbage is a mirror, reflecting the frenzy of Beijing's urban expansion over the past 20 years. For the 2000 or so scavengers from the less-developed provinces of Sichuan, Henan, and Anhui, however, garbage dumps are the only places where they can build up their dreams for the future.
这巨量的建筑垃圾是一面镜子,映射的是北京近二十年来最疯狂的城市扩张;而这超过2000多名 来自四川、河南、安徽等省份的拾荒大军,却只能在垃圾堆上构建生活梦想。
