We are all aware of the global pollution problem, but hardly anyone realizes just how much trash we produce daily. Gregg Segal, a photographer from California, aims to show this problem through powerful imagery, photographing people lying in their weekly load of trash. His ongoing project cleverly called “7 Days of Garbage” tries to portray people from different social backgrounds to reach largest audience possible .
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.
Some of the participants were too ashamed of how much garbage they produced weekly, so they edited their garbage bags. Others showed everything just the way it was resulting in nasty and very strong images, which you can see here.

interesanta si binevenita aceasta ” penitenta ” din partea vesticilor iar sensibilizarea opiniei publice absolut necesara!
Ma-ntreb insa, ce ar spune acestia daca ar afla ca Romania practica acest exercitiu de mai bine de 20 de ani dormind nepasatoare printre munti de gunoaie?!
In urma cu trei ani am apelat la serviciile cailor ferate romane pe umatoarea ruta descrisa mai jos

si intregul traseu – am observ cu stupoare – era marcat de un sir interminabil de gunoaie, in special pet-uri. O linie albastra -stravezie ruland in paralel cu lina ferata. Cu o singura intrerupere notabila, din momentul intrarii in Bucovina pana undeva prin apropierea Sucevei, de unde iarasi continuand nestingherita pana la statia finala.
