Who knew a photo essay on trash could be so lovely. While overall, this article is kind of bleak because it shows just how much we humans waste every single week (I really didn't mean for that to rhyme), the photographer must be lauded for his approach to showcasing ecological destruction.
Here's a little blurb from Bored Panda:
Segal decided to photograph the participants in front of naturalistic backgrounds to show that the garbage produced by us is effecting it directly.“Obviously, the series is guiding people toward a confrontation with the excess that’s part of their lives. I’m hoping they recognize a lot of the garbage they produce is unnecessary”, he said to Slate.
Let's hope this helps everyone reexamine how much they actually need. Here's to farmers markets, real food, and recycling!!
