Plastic Bags of New York

Photographer Nicole Espina recently moved to NYC via San Diego and is totally embracing her new environment with her project Plastic Bags of New York. The project, living on Instagram and Facebook, pairs photos of discarded plastic bags with real quotes from Humans of New York. It’s highly entertaining to personify these bags and I’m glad something good is coming from all that waste. Plus, it’s really funny to imagine her chasing after plastic bags in the streets to get a good shot.

“I can walk around this city and point to 200 or 300 buildings I’ve worked on. Sometimes I go a little overboard with the pointing”
