Burial Grounds is located in El Cerro Mission, 30 minutes south of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Over the years, this rural area lined by mobile homes has evolved into a makeshift landfill. Tires, speedboats, furniture, garbage bags of house waste, and animal carcasses are all discarded on this site. Since the cost of disposing this waste at a regulated landfill can be prohibitive, the desert becomes an open burial ground.
