This month I started on a new photographic investigation of waste. We produce an unbelievable amount of waste, but I see so little of it around in daily life. In my investigation, I want to see whether waste is still really waste. After a day of taking photos, my first impression is that the processing of our food waste strongly resembles the way our food is produced: systematic and efficient.
