Baled: Photographs of America's Recyclables

Wesley Law's series "Baled' is a photography project that follows some of the millions of pounds of everyday items discarded annually in the US and shipped overseas to be recycled. Beginning in a massive warehouse space in St. Louis, Law decided to take a closer look and discovered that each bale had, “their own personality, their own identity.” He explains, “I think when people look at what’s embedded in these things, it evokes our past and our memories.”
