The “7 Days of Garbage” series signed by photographer Gregg Segal explores waste issues within the American contemporary culture by immortalising people from various wallowing in a week’s worth of their waste.
7 Days of Garbage is a series of portraits of friends, neighbors, and other acquaintances with the garbage they accumulate in the course of a week. Subjects are photographed surrounded by their trash in a setting that is part nest, part archeological record. We’ve made our bed and in it we lie.
As Segal confessed to the Slate, some participants “edited” their garbage 🙂
