Les Miserables
Project info

“Les Miserables” is meant to show the reality of the brick factories in Nepal. An activity that destroys people and landscape in a never ending progression. The aim is to highlight the problema in order to improve the living conditions of the workers and stop the ecological desaster. On the outskirts of Kathmandu, the landscape has turned into chimneys, sweat and smoke. The worker of
the factory lived in a dusty mud shack that belongs to the place. Before dawn he will start carrying bricks on his back only to return back to his slum, once the light disappears amongst smoke, dust and the heat of the furnaces. Child workers mixed with women carrying their loads in an infernal routine that will only stop to extract, with a simple hoe, the clay that will allow him to continue is
terrible work.
