Artist Leopoldo Plentz’s series ‘Useless Things’ examines the relationship between human beings, consumption, and waste. For this project, Plentz went around picking up what most would call â€œtrashâ€ off the streets, altered his finds digitally, and subsequently took the litter to his studio to photograph the untouched items in order to transform the way we look at garbage.
Leopoldo Plentz’s mission was to force the viewer to rethink what is considered useless, essential, beautiful, and ordinary.
