This Photographer Stored His Trash For 4 Years And Then Created This Powerful Photo Series


Back in 2011,  This photographer Antoine Repessé stopped throwing away his recyclable trash to make a point During the 4 year period, the Lille-based artist has accumulated over 70 cubic metres of trash: 1,600 milk bottles, 4,800 toilet rolls, and 800 kg (~1,750 lb) of newspapers, all of which he then separated for an even stronger visual impact: “I wanted to give an aesthetic dimension to my work,” he explains. “The choice of sorting the garbage gives a graphic effect. I tried to produce a perfect picture which evokes something disturbing.”
