Photographer's Note

This is Eshaben. I went to visit her just a few days after I met her whilst she was out collecting rubbish. Unfortunately, she was very ill. She told me she did not know exactly what was wrong with her. She aches all over and feels extremely weak. This illness occurs every month or so. She is the only person who earns money in her household - her daughter in law sees to household duties.

That is her grandson. Unfortunately, his mother left a few days earlier - it seems she was not comfortable with things in the 7ft squared home, which is shared by the four of them. I am not too sure if the boy knows what is going on.. He is one of the most well behaved children I have ever met. I hope his mother is seeing to her duties now..their situation brings a lump to my throat.
