Trash for a Face Photos

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.

The 'Republic of Pulau Semakau' shoot features residents of Singapore, and was taken in the specific environment each of person worked, lived, or played

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.
