One of my favorite things about keeping a trash blog, as I like to mention here, is that it not only allows me to find and report on things that interest me, but for people to find me themselves and pass on interesting tidbits. This morning was one of those days. I woke up, checked my email and found a nice note from Douglas Brodoff, an American artist living in France whose ongoing series “Petits Hommes Verts” or “Little Green Men” honors the sanitation workers of Paris on canvas and in photographs.
Take a click through, I think you’ll enjoy what you see. Pictured here is Brodoff’s “Les ordures dorment jamais” or “Refuse Never Sleeps”. I love the pink light of Paris used in such a trashy context.
