We believe in creating visual archives of a planet which is changing so fast.
We believe in photographing the human history in an accelerated globalizing process, the environmental changes,the extinction of the species, the disappearance of tribes ,cultural values and traditional ways of living.
We believe in portraying the forgotten, in portraying the vanishing world.
Javier Sanchez-Monge Escardo
Forgotten from the rest of the world, the scavenger society offers some unique anthropological values of their own. Human bonds develop not because of materialistic values but because of a true human relationship based on a culture of sharing and living detached from every possession; in this sense their life philosophy could be truly enriching for the modern materialistic value-based society.
They survive on what we discard;they feed on our left overs.
