Beauty is in the eye of the trash holder


Why do we regard certain things to be priceless and others as insignificant as a trash can?

What started as a fascination for the trash bags scattered around the streets of Brussels, morphed into a fascination with the object that contains them.  

What are trash cans? We often have to look for them, but not at them. Do they lose their meaning when we take them out of context, or rather, do they gain another?

By changing or even removing the context of the object completely through the use of different photographic languages, we can disrupt the regular association with it. This disruption causes the viewer to reconsider this object. This project is an offbeat examination of our under-represented relationship with our trash cans.
