For ninety days in 2012, environmentalist and educator Peter Gwillim Kreitler walked the same one quarter mile stretch of Santa Monica Beach collecting flotsam and debris that floated in from the ocean or was left on the beach. Pieces of this collected trash were taken to his home where all was sorted, a portion discarded, much recycled and the rest saved, meticulously cleaned and catalogued.
A year and a half later the selected items were photographed by fine arts photographer John Reiff Williams.
The body of work is entitled No Es Basura - This is Not Trash.
