Dump

Photographer's Name: 
Daniel Ochoa de Olza

Plants grow in-between millions of used tyres dumped in Sesena, south of Madrid, 2014. The massive pile of 75,000 tons of tyres stretching over 10 hectares has been a major environmental problem since the 1990's when a company began using the site as a temporary depot for old tyres due to be recycled. The nearby town of Sesena live in fear of the rubber heap catching fire.
