Rizacan Kumas #Look Up
When the visual photographer Rizacan Kumas was walking at the corridor, a kind soul smiled at him. Hence, the born of this photograph. He was a trash worker, searching for recyclable material everyday for his living. That moment, he looked up and smiled for no reasons. Yet, it was the moment that touched the heart.
After talking to him, the visual photographer realises the gruelling working condition faced by many of the waste-management workers, who work brutally for very little pay. Not only they are poorly paid, but also need to work in an unsafe and dangerous environment. They had to handle materials like broken glass and biological waste that could infect, poison or otherwise injure them. In fact, sanitation and recycling work remains more dangerous than policing or firefighting according to The New York Times.
Sometimes when he is lucky, he could turn trash into treasure. In particular, when someone is moving out of a nice neighbourhood, he will grab the trash bag and rip it open to peek at what is inside. Then, he might find something that is useful for his little home. Do you know that the visual photographer also cross the silk road and travel around the world for his photography journey? Read it now!
Indeed, he was such a kind and happy soul, always smile for no reason. He sees his job just as happy as his life. Nowadays, millions of people worldwide make a living by collecting, sorting, recycling, and selling materials that someone else has thrown away. These trash workers contribute largely to local economies, to public health and safety, and to environmental sustainability. “Look Up” is definitely a photograph worth pondering upon, particularly its message behind.
