Commonwealth Avenue

I’m in the Philippines and am due to be here to photograph for the next 3 weeks.

Today was spent with Mark Mcdowell, an American who lives and works in Quezon City along the stretch of Commonwealth Avenue, a road which stretches to about 18 lanes in total.

As the land around Commonwealth Avenue is acquired for redevelopment people living in and around it are being moved on, often with nowhere else to go. These images are of one such family, who are now living on the pavement underneath the beginning of a footbridge which spans the width of the road.
