16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Urban Stream in High Park, Toronto (Self-Portrait)

Off a busy urban footpath, this stream is teeming with litter. I am wearing a bathing suit made from plastic bags found in the stream to embody waste: my garbage will outlive me by up to 1,000 years. Garbage is an understated part of my legacy, and the legacy of millions of other people across the world.
