Trashing America

Sometimes the ordinary can look extraordinary. Close to my house a building was being renovated. The construction company brought a dumpster out to throw the trash in and haul it away easily. Typically a very ordinary scene. In this case the dumpster was painted with the american flag on it. I was stunned by the fact that the workers were expected to throw trash into this container that contained the iconic symbol of the United States. I had plenty of opportunity to shot this shot under ideal lighting conditions, but chose harsh mid-day light in order to bring out the edges and textures on the metal.

If you would like a copy of “Trashing America” I have a limited number of signed archival quality un-mated 8×10 prints for sale. Only $25 each.
