Our Garbage Lives Exposed [Portrait Series] 3

Aw Zinkie has recently created an insightful portrait series examining peoples lives, their possessions, and most importantly, their garbage. Our garbage reveals a lot about who we are, our culture, and the consumer environment we have become slaves to.  Aw Zinkie works from Singapore and ties her work to the looming garbage problem, waste management solution of Singapore, and the landfill island it has ‘augmented’, Pulau Semakau.

Check out the photos below for a sample of the work entitled “Republic of Pulau Semakau”.  You can see the entire series on her site and say hello on her facebook page.
