They say a photo can speak loudly. The following photos are no exception to that saying. They are very powerful and speak very loudly for their cause.
A group of friends decided to pose with their weeks worth of garbage.
They wanted to promote the amount of waste that we use every week.
The series of images were the idea of Photographer Gregg Segal
He wanted to provoke this idea to the public
To add diversity to the project, Segal tried to find volunteers from a variety of background and families or just housemates
I think this is a huge wake up call for all of humanity.
So much waste every single week.
The portraits will be on a 1000 ft stretch on the Brooklyn Bridge through October.
He hopes that people learn that a lot of the garbage they produce is unnecessary.
Segal is quoted saying “We’ve made our bed and now we lie in it”.
His goal was to portray a problem in our world
And I think he did a very good job portraying it.
A lot of his volunteers were excited and eager to help
Although he believes some of them “edited” their trash.
But regardless, every photo speaks loudly and his goal has been achieved.
And each photo shows a different household and a different lifestyle.
With one common core, too much waste.

These make me think more about my lifestyle and the garbage I go through every single week.
