* This project has nothing to do with the Andy Warhol movies which had those titles. We just like them. How you interpret the titles is up to you. For example TRASH can be a photo-essay about a garbage collector in Manila or a satirical comedy about trashy socialites in Jakarta or a dystopian parable about androids made out of Bangkok waste.
