    7 Days of Garbage

    We have been told time and again about the global pollution problem. Yet a lot of these messages fall on deaf ears. So one photographer Gregg Segal from California, tries to show this problem through a series of creative imagery – photographing people lying in their weekly load of trash.

    Called the “7 Days of Garbage”, the series features people and families from different socioeconomic backgrounds. For the backdrop of his photographs, Segal used natural materials to transform his yard into artificial environments, like a lawn, a sandy beach or a body of filthy water.

    The trash we’re seeing in the photos may not be all that the participants have junked that week. Some have resorted to ‘editing’ their rubbish as they were too ashamed of how much they generated weekly.

    The photographs were nothing short of mesmerising, although we’re not sure how effective the campaign was in getting people to reduce excess consumption. What are your thoughts? Do share your comments below.

Good food is just one of her many likes, Puffer Fish also loves visiting new and familiar places around the world because she believes there are always new discoveries and adventures to be had. She considers herself one lucky ass to be able to put her editorial background to good use by sharing her travel and gastronomical adventures online via Gratenews.
