Dirt, filth and rotten smell

The challenge was interesting and trust me it wasn’t an easy one…
Can garbage produce art through photography?  
You tell me!
Pictures were taken during the last (out of many) strike of public sector scavengers.

    Disturbing and impressive reportage. I hope the strikes will serve their purpose and won’t just be treated as rubbish too :-(
    1, 5, 7 and 8 are my favourite images!

      No strike will serve any purpose. And the bad thing is that the world says “look at them, instead of working to pay their debts, they’re destroying their country”. We are statistically the most hard working people in Europe and we are called lazy and thieves, thanks to our criminal politicians! :D
