The Visual Du Jour – Garbage City

Via Inhabitat: where’s Wall-E?

As the blog post notes,

“This unbelievable city piled high with trash is a real place called Garbage City, outside of Cairo in Egypt. It’s populated by a community of workers called Zabbaleen, who personally collect, sort, reuse, resell or otherwise repurpose Cairo’s waste. Recently several photographers have trained their cameras upon the city, and now we see what it would really be like to live in the aftermath of our own consumption.”

Get over there and check out the other photos.
