Interview: Dr. David Parker on Child Labor

Dr. David Parker interrupted his career as a medical doctor in the United States to document the hidden lives of children forced to work in toxic environments around the world. He traveled to Mexico, India, and Nepal to capture some of the estimated 230 million children laboring in factories, scavenging garbage dumps to find things to sell, and working as child prostitutes. Parker is determined to end the practice of child labor and sees his camera as his greatest weapon.
