Swedes are among the top recyclers in the world, and almost all household garbage is recycled (if burning for heat is to be considered recycling, that is). The average inhabitant here produce 466 kilos of waste each year, and I got curious how that would look like piled up in one heap. So for a full year, I´ve documented EVERYTHING me and my two children Nova and Levi threw away. This is what it looked like. 499, kilos in total.

Full time photographer since 2001, mainly shooting editorial work and aerials.
