Photographer Gregg Segal's 7 Days of Garbage photo series. “7 Days of Garbage is a series of portraits of friends, neighbors, and other acquaintances with the garbage they accumulate in the course of a week. Subjects are photographed surrounded by their trash in a setting that is part nest, part archeological record. We’ve made our bed and in it we lie.” http://www.slate.com/blogs/behold/2014/07/08/gregg_segal_photographs_people_with_a_week_s_worth_of_their_trash_in_his.html

[Los Angeles] Digital photographer Thierry Cohen, envisions what cities around the world would look like after dark and without artificial light in his series Villes éteintes ("Darkened Cities"). To create the images he travelled to regions far away from all artificial light, but on the same latitude as major cities. He photographed the skies, and then combined those images with photographs of the cities in question, altered to remove all lighting.
Thierry Cohen - LosAngeles
Darkened Cities by Thierry Cohen imagines the starry skies we’d see in urban areas if we turned off all the lights.
Thierry Cohen’s Darkened Cities Celestial skyscrapers. Night sky can’t be seen over major cities due to light pollution. Cohen photographed cities and took special note of time, angle, latitude and longitude of the photographs.He followed the same stars and photographed them in more ideal locations, such as the Sahara Desert.

The photograph looks at once beautiful and disturbing: crystalline waters shimmer beside a rock-strewn beach. It takes a moment to realize those jade speckles aren't some extraordinary case of marine phosphorescence but rather hundreds of discarded plastic bottles, piled upon the rocks.

“Washed Up” gathers ocean pollution to create environmental art
Ever wonder where that bottle goes when you toss it into the ocean? Washed Up is an ongoing project by Mexican-born, New York-based artist Alejandro Durán that addresses the issue of plastic pollution making its way across the ocean and onto the shores of Sian Ka’an, Mexico’s largest federally-protected reserve.
