Photo Illustration by Irene Liebler – “One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure”
Project 52 Assignment 31: Here’s The Brief, by Don Giannatti:
“An old saying that we don’t hear much anymore, but it always reminds us that some folks throw out what other folks love. I have found some amazingly cool things at flea markets and garage sales and such.
Treasures? LOL, well maybe not treasures… but certainly some stuff that I have made great use of. The concept you are going to illustrate is that the idea of throwing out things / others collecting things may be a new movement that is spreading from rural areas to the cities. It has become a new way of ‘bartering’ or, in some cases decorating and designing with found objects.”

This shot was created in Photoshop and took about 5 hours. Here’s a 13-minute video showing the process, including false starts and lots of trial and error.
