Extreme Juxtapositions by Adam James Turnbull in New York, NY, USA

New York is an extremely busy place, people are all over the city all the time, the trash situation in New York is just as hectic as the pace of the city, if you’ve ever been here you would notice that on garbage day there are bags and bags of trash all over the city, out the front of the most expensive restaurants, hotels, exclusive bars etc, it’s quite fascinating. New York also has extreme weather and here I have illustrated a trash bin on the street full of discarded umbrellas expressing how disposable everything is here in New York.
