Terrifying Photos of People Lying in 7 Days Worth Of Their Garbage
We all know that we produce a lot of garbage, but throwing them out nearly daily prevents us from noticing just how much is “a lot.” In this project, aptly named “7 Days of Garbage,” photographer Gregg Segal took bizarrely artistic photos of families and individuals laying in 7 days-worth pool of their garbage, escalating the inconvenient truth about one of the deepest environmental issues of today.
All of subjects, brave enough to show to the world their trash in the most vulnerable of ways, were Segal’s neighbours, friends, and other acquaintances. “Subjects are photographed surrounded by their trash in a setting that is part nest, part archaeological record,” explains the photographer. “We’ve made our bed and in it we lie.”
