The North Cemetery hosts 2000 living people, entire families living in converted mausoleums, as people sit at home moaning about their air conditioning or the dishwasher playing up, spare a thought for 40% of the population of the country who live below the poverty line.

80+ funerals per day take place in the large cemetery and the residents pretty much live in a gated community. James Chance undertook a project and has some quite honestly breath-taking images of the life of the people that live there.
