I discovered the magic artwork of Adam Magyar a while back through a Medium article. He is revolutionizing the way we can capture and view images. I am in love with his work. It is haunting, amazing, awe inspiring, breathtaking, mesmerizing, and beautiful. He captures a moment in a way we have never been able to before.
When I look at his work I feel so many sides of humanity. The connection we all share, the loneliness we can all experience even as we stand side by side. The sweetness children deliver to any space they reside. He shows us the extraordinary in what most people do ordinarily.
So, I have what will most likely be a never ending photography series with the working title, “Pick Up Your Shit.” My husband and I go on a great deal of outdoor adventures and I am sad to say that each time we are out and about in nature I find that someone has littered. For some reason it makes me even more angry to find litter when I’m surrounded by trees, water, or mountains compared to when I’m walking up and down concrete streets. So, to deal with my anger I started photographing the litter to someday show in a gallery space. When I can reach it and carry it, I pick up the litter and throw it away.
Needless to say, I was a giddy little girl when I discovered Litterati, an online storage space for found (and hopefully picked up) litter. Started by a Bay Area man himself, Litterati asks you to take 4 steps and join their revolution.
