Zhang, working thousands of miles away from home, carries trash he fetched at a garbage mount on the outskirts of Beijing. ..The scavenger is among some 50 people from a farming village in the southwestern province of Sichuan, who were driven to the relatively rich Chinese capital by bleak job opportunities at home...Here the workers pick, sort and sell anything from beer bottles to rotting bread seven days a week for a monthly income of about 300 yuan, which compares handsomely with an annual household income of about 1,000 yuan at their village. ..Picture taken March 1999.Copyright Justin JinAdd to Lightbox Download
