David Joseph has always been searching for different ways to capture the beauty of the everyday object, and then communicate that beauty to others.
A few years ago he began to document the abandoned coffee cups that he found casually discarded, with complete disregard for the environment, on the streets of Manhatttan. Joseph realized that New Yorkers, no matter their socioeconomic status, were leaving their tags all over the city. The city is covered with this new graffiti; beautiful litter left behind by its busy inhabitants, with no time to properly discard their coffee cups.
With the Morning Joe series, Joseph challenges you to reconsider what you see everyday, questioning what is trash and what is beauty, or can something be both?
