A man stands next to the door of his room under a bridge in Manila on August 21, 2012. Families cram into small rooms under a bridge so they can live for free. Manila’s population of 20 million people is rising by approximately a quarter of a million every year. Due to overcrowding a third of the Filipino capital’s residents are forced to live on any bit of spare land they can manage, often in makeshift settlements under bridges, beside railway lines and even in cemeteries.
