this photo was taken on August 19, 2010 during a demolition in Luzon Avenue Quezon City.

for couple weeks I been documenting housing conditions in Manila. when I received an information about this demolition I rushed to the site to cover it. these were the first few frames I shot.

A tin roof fell during the demolition, it supposed to be going to hit the child but her mother manage to hold her and cover her. the girl was so terrified. large debris were flying above our heads from all the directions as the informal settlers defending their homes and the demolition personnels counters.

the demolition personnels failed to demolish the community but the settlers still worries on their uncertainty.
