Took these self portraits using the repeating timer feature on my camera with the NYSPP in mind. I ended up submitting something different but it was definitely interesting being by myself at a dark and sketchy loading dock past midnight with a couple thousand dollars of equipment balanced on top of a stack of about 4 milk crates and attracting attention with ridiculously bright flashes every 30 seconds. Who needs tripods when you have a bit of sketchiness and imagination? =)

In a world where a child dies every 30 seconds from starvation, the major food outlet corporations of our society continue to waste thousands of kilos of perfectly good food every night, simply because it is profitable to do so.

The unfortunate circumstances of me being a student with not much spare cash and the owner of a carnivorous animal who does not want to support the meat industry, means I have taken to supplementing both of our diets from this dumpster fairly regularly.

Even though the vast majority of food I find in there is far from spoiled, my recent interest in local, organic food means I find myself going there more and more purely for the latter purpose than the former. I bought food from these fucking places for so long I forgot what it tastes like to eat a vegetable that hasn't been sitting artificially preserved in a warehouse for months before it got to me.

I really hope that if your reading this, you give a second thought to where your food is coming from, how much petrol (or jet fuel) had to be burned to get it to your plate, and what the implications are for your health and the environment. After becoming disgusted with the wastefulness I would experience first hand almost every night I went there, I now source almost everything I eat from local producers such as the local food co-op and farmers markets. After realising how much better for the farmers, my health and environment it is, I really hope you consider doing the same. You don't need to pay someone to fill a building with processed, frozen food just for the convenience of having it in one busy, stressful, depressing place.
Its bullshit.
