In what I consider a bizarre and odd photo series, the ‘Republic of Pulau Semakau’ photo shoot includes a number of images of people covering their face with their trash bin.
Apparently the idea is to let people know how their lives are reflected in their garbage.
It seems to be a snapshot of a disparate group of people reflecting a moment and period of time in their lives.
The work was shot by artist Zinkie Aw and was recently displayed at the Goodman Arts Centre Gallery.
An interesting but strange gallery of photos, as is the inspiration behind it.
