On a recent kayaking venture in Jamaica Bay, Martin, my partner, and I found ourselves picking up all of the litter that had washed ashore on one of the islands. We collected three buckets full of lids, plastic bags, cans and a carefully wrapped voodoo doll that had been thrown into the water by someone hoping for a better life. Barry takes his litter collecting to a whole new level by turning it into works of art. His ability to see the beauty is a gift. His talent to reuse our waste is an even greater contribution.
