©The Trash Book is an editorial project that reflects our "not so clean" way to explore cities and try to understand their communities, with all their complexities and different manners of living within their own areas.
The book looks to open a dialogue and be an x-ray of the idiosyncrasies of different societies around the world.
We have a wishlist of cities that we would love to visit, walk and pick up some nasty garbage from their streets. As any idea, we need funds to carry out our plan. So, we are looking for crowdfunding's support to try and spread the idea and get enough to fund and produce the rest of the books we have in mind.
New York is the project´s first victim. While living there, we collected newyorkers garbage from different neighborhoods in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and The Bronx. The book was made and bound exclusively with waste material found on the streets.
©The Trash Book of New York is a tour through different cultures, american consumerism and capitalism all living together in the most cosmopolitan city of the world.
