Tengo Hambre is based on a photograph that I took as I ventured into the inhabited dump outside Managua, Nicaragua. The boy with the pickaxe had been working hard since dawn alongside his father and brother to uncover items to sell. His bag was filled with metal and plastic.

At noontime, his sister brought him a bowl of fish soup. The family had left their home in the mountains to live in the dump and collect a few coins each day. They hoped to work in a different place soon. It is my honor to chronicle these daily struggles and share their story.
