Trash People at National Geographic

My day job is across the street from the National Geographic Society buildings. Just the other day, they installed "Trash People," a unique art exhibit featuring 50 life-sized figures made entirely of waste, created by German artist H.A. Schult. The artist's objective in creating the figures is to raise awareness of the volume of garbage left by humans over the course of a lifetime. The figures have traveled to some of the world’s best-known landmarks, including the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids at Giza and Red Square in Moscow. The exhibit is timed to coincide with the new National Geographic Channel film “Human Footprint.”

Here are some images that I shot yesterday of the exhibit:

Pretty cool! So did you learn auto bracketing so you can do some Grunge HDR on these because you are right... a great subject for that.
