By Aitai Shakibafar

There are places around Iranian cities where women, men and children work, live and breathe among the garbage. There are women in these places who are pregnant live in between garbage that there is no health with great difficulty.  They have very little income and it's hard for them every day. Children play with destroyed toys which found from garbage with their mothers. They sort waste by their colors every day until the recycling machine converts them to the smallest possible shape.

Without any limitations of language and culture, Photojournalism begins to record events and display the inner layers of life. Photojournalism has the task of informing and transferring various ways of life, and in a particular sense of this definition, photojournalism is, in many cases, documenting harsh conditions in the surrounding area.
