rubble Photographer Manuel Branco takes pictures of dumpsters, trash and rubble.  Like gartog colleagues Chris Jordan and Last Night’s Garbage, Branco’s work magnifies and abstracts these commonly ignored subjects.  The result is a glossy and unique collection of images that dwell on color and force the viewer to examine discarded materials in a new light.  Some of these photos can be found in the book DUMPSTERS, TRASH and RUBBLE – Elements of Abstraction which is for sale and will soon be updated in an expanded version.  Check out more of Branco’s work on Flickr, JPG Magazine or imagekind.

    I find it so funny, that while we are trying to slim down our bin, people make pictures of the stuff we don”‘t like, and actually, their pictures bring out the beauty of our waste! tops!!!

    I’ve also created a 2009 Calendar on the theme at QOOP. You can view and purchase it, if you like, at the following link:


    I encourage everyone who visits to read my comments accompanying the calendar at the QOOP site.

    Hope you like it as much as the Blurb book.
