Dumpster Pinhole Cameras Capture a City's Hidden Side

by Liz Dwyer

May 5, 2012

You might only notice your local sanitation workers if your trash doesn't get hauled away on time. But a photography project by garbage collectors in Hamburg, Germany will have you seeing the people who empty your dumpster every week in a different light.

All of the Trashcam Project images can be found on their Flickr page, and there's even talk of exhibiting the photographs in a local gallery. The video below shows the workers in action, setting up their trashcams—sure, it's in German, but it's nice to see these guys getting to capture images of the city they know so well and share them with the world.
