Documentary photographer Kadir van Lohuizen traveled to New York, Lagos, Sao Paolo, Jakarta, Tokyo and his hometown Amsterdam last year to capture the waste streams within these cities. For weeks he stayed in and near the dump sites, taking pictures and talking to the people that actually live there.
