Scrap is a love letter to the things we use in our daily lives. Through deeply personal and surprisingly moving stories—a Thai family living in an abandoned airplane, recycling workers in Delhi picking apart discarded electronics, a farmer in South Dakota building sculptures from scrap metal—the strange beauty of end-of-life objects comes into focus. Together these stories convey a deeper environmental message about the tragic rise of overconsumption, disposables and planned obsolescence. When objects are built cheaply and made to be thrown away, we all too quickly lose the instinct and ability to repair or recycle. Scrap confronts big topics with a gentle nostalgia and a quiet pace. You’ll never look at junk in quite the same way again.
