SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA.  A young scavenger of the “Anlong Pi dump” searches for recyclable material in the middle of clouds of toxic smoke. The enormous accumulation of junk over the last two years has doubled the capacity of the landfill, producing new chemical and biological reactions between organic and inorganic compounds. The resulting toxic products are washed by rain water, contaminating soil and groundwater, or are emitted into the atmosphere.  Photo: ©Omar Havana
