7 Days of Garbage

Global pollution problem! We all know what's going on right? 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 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".
