A feature for the Independent - a community of people who live in tombs in Liberia's capital Monrovia.
I aimed to show a life so harsh its unthinkable - its impossible to imagine how frightening it is to sleep amongst dead people remains.
Children as young as 13 are living in Monrovia’s city-centre cemetery. Unaccompanied by any responsible adults, they sleep inside tombs having emptied them of their corpses. About 100 people call Palm Grove cemetery their home, and all are addicted to class A drugs.
In the daytime, the boys scrape together enough money to feed their habit, by thieving and selling stolen goods or by doing odd jobs. In the night time, all the girls open shop for prostitution – servicing clients among the graves.
The cemetery is foul – it reeks of human excrement. I hope it helped people in the UK to understand how it was living in these conditions especially with the terror of the Ebola crisis at its height in Monrovia.
