21st century totem poles

hero_davidart.jpg

After a particularly greedy weekend, we might take a look at the bin and feel a little bit awful. Not just because of our ever-expanding waistline or ever-decreasing bank balance but because of the whole environment and all that.

Photographer David Welch creates totem poles from a variety of items that sum up our consumptive habits. His images aim to create discussion around how much we use and take for granted.

While they certainly do that, they also leave us feeling even guiltier, as that pile of burgers is making us absurdly hungry. We may have missed the point on that one.

You can see more of his work here.
