No Es Basura
This Is Not Trash


The Exhibit:

For ninety days in 2012, environmentalist and educator Peter Gwillim Kreitler walked the same ¼ mile of Santa Monica Beach collecting flotsam and debris that floated in from the ocean, or was left at the beach. Pieces of this collected trash were taken to his home where some was meticulously cleaned, sorted, a portion discarded, much recycled, and the rest saved and catalogued. 

A year and a half later fine arts photographer John Reiff Williams photographed the selected items.

The body of work is entitled No Es Basura – This is Not Trash.
