Description The eminent Indian photo-journalist Raghu Rai's exhibition, Compassion for the Kabaris, is now open at The William Road Gallery, with a selection of nineteen works vividly portraying the lives of the waste-pickers who comb through the tons of waste dumped on Delhi’s biggest landfill site, Ghazipur, recycling as they go.

The exhibition, commissioned and hosted by award-winning architectural practice John McAslan + Partners, draws attention to the work of Chintan (Environmental Research and Action Group) at Ghazipur. Chintan places waste-pickers – the Kabaris – at the heart of a new national initiative to improve the lives of Kabari families, whilst highlighting the urgent need for better organised and more humane waste recycling.

Compassion for the Kabaris exhibition runs until 30th September, Monday-Friday 8.30am-6.30pm at William Road Gallery, 7-9 William Road, London NW1 3ER, Tel: 020 7313 6000
