„With 7 Days of Garbage, I call attention to the problem of waste by personalizing it. I asked family, friends, neighbors and other acquaintances to save their trash and recyclables for a week and then lie down and be photographed in it. I photographed my family because I want my 8-year-old son to understand that we’re contributing to the problem, too.
Why recyclables, some have asked. For several reasons: much of what is designated recyclable isn’t recycled, recycling plastic has environmental costs, and packaging is excessive.”
