Waste Land*Vik MUniz

Last night I came across this truly inspiring documentary by Lucy Walker called "Waste Land." Walker films Brooklyn based Brazilian artist Vik Muniz through his journey in his homeland Brazil and through the world's largest garbage dump, Jardim Gramacho, where he was inspired by the lives of the "catadores" - self-designated pickers of recyclable material, to create these truly mesmerizing pieces of art. If you have a chance to watch it, please do. It will move and inspire you! Check out the film's official trailer and some photos of his work bellow.
