Krispy Kreme's dumpster is one of the most satisfying dumpsters in Gainesville. McDonald's dumpster is hard to get into because they lock it up.

The project:

This project tracks and records the lives of squatters, or dirty kids, in Gainesville.

Squatting involves living on the streets, in abandoned buildings or with anybody who will house you.

Squatters travel from town to town by hitchhiking, train hopping or any other way they can figure out.

While there is always a risk with the police, violence or being taken advantage of, many squatters feel it's the only way to live.
