Midtown Trash

Author(s): Richard R. Panchyk
$23.99
DESCRIPTION
Midtown Trash is a unique book that takes a closer look at mid-Manhattan’s garbage—the small and the large, the beautiful and the disgusting, the mundane and the bizarre.

The photos in this book are snapshots of Midtown life as seen through its garbage.

Author Richard Panchyk presents a photographic history of the discards of Midtown’s residents, workers, and tourists, all of whom coexist and contribute to the landscape of urban refuse, the many tons of trash generated every single day.

From tattered sneakers to wrecked umbrellas, from fallen gloves to forlorn chairs, Midtown Trash presents a groundbreaking and ground-dirtying look at the wide variety of objects we leave behind.
