The earnings are pitiful, but at least this one is an official collector. It's striking the gracious behaviour of these people when asked for a portrait.

We learned there was a black market in UNHCR refugee tents, but we didn't know where they were sold. It took three days of painstaking research to finally track down the seller on the outskirts of Amman. His unit was piled high to the rafters with old tents. It seems there is a healthy market in used tents which command high prices. We found this young lad, a Palestian refugee, working in a scrapyard on the edge of Amman. Looking much older than his years, he stands in front of these elusive UNHCP tents. The slogan on his sweater seems all too prescient...

Independent scrap dealer on outskirts of Amman with various metals for sale. Apparently the profits the fractional –  compared to the UNDP tents.

Bulldozers here show their contempt for animal life, squashing chicks mounted high, many of them still chirping as I quickly grabbed this photo. A bulldozer piles high chicken eggs, many of which were hatching in the blazing sun. Catching a few moments of life, before being extinguished moments later.

I photographed this very early one morning in Amman's suburbs. She is an itinerant street collector, and therefore unofficial. She rifles through the bins looking for old tin cans for which she was will receive a few cents each. I photographed this very early one morning in Amman's suburbs.

This young lad of 13, a Palestinian refugee, who works by trading recycled goods on the outskirts of Amman stands before his tent. His expression of world weariness appear to defy his tender age.

Syrian Refugees – the sisters were very caring of their younger brother, who appears to be very unwell. His sad expression was hard to swallow set against their inevitable fate. In total contrast to filth of the recycling and scrap yards, we encountered this high-tech, smart factory producing water catchment units to serve the affluent houses all over the Middle East.
