50 Greenspace Dumpsites documents illegal dumpsites in the city of Pittsburgh that are close to and on the edges of greenspaces: public parks, Little League fields, cemeteries and playgrounds. The photographs appear to be landscapes of public spaces at first, but when coupled with data about the space as a dumpsite, the multiple layers of information present viewers with a new perception of these places. By creating a bridge between the unsuspecting landscape image and the truth about what happens there, we are bringing a new level of significance to these sites.
