Photographer Wesley Law’s work explores important issues like economic growth and trash disposal through a series of impressive projects. The Motor Racers projects depicts American racing enthusiasts of diverse backgrounds as The Baltic Tiger project looks at the flourishing country that Estonia has become after gaining independence from the Soviet Union. His series LAYUPS: Illegal Border Trash—shot on the Mexican border in Arizona—touches on trash left behind by illegals as they make their way through an unstable desert in hopes of a better future. If you’ve ever thought about how much garbage a person disposes of in a day, and/or what happens to all that trash, his latest project called BALED: America’s Recyclables will both surprise and enlighten on the issue. A large-scale project to say the least, it hints at the transient nature of things—if not needs—through objects discarded as quickly as they’re acquired.
