“Flat shit is an iPhone photo project that started by accident in the winter of 2012-2013. I have always collected and then photographed trash, continually fascinated and horrified by the crap people discard in playgrounds and parking lots. One day while walking my dog, I spotted an interested object and instead of picking it up and taking it back to the studio, I snapped an iPhone shot and uploaded it to Instagram. As I stood there wondering what hashtag to assign a piece of flat shit, the project was born.

Flat shit is nothing more than a curated study of objects from a throwaway culture. Some of these objects have exquisite beauty and some are just trash, depending on one’s point of view. Regardless, I keep looking and shooting, and unfortunately there is no shortage of material.”
