Discarded Drug Baggies from the Streets of South London

Collected by photographer Dan Giannopoulos

“For the past year, I have collected discarded drug bags from the streets of South London in order to map public drug consumption in the capital. These bags are not only interesting pieces of miniature street art that most people will pay little to no attention to but they also carry the uneasy trace of an illicit activity. The pinpoints of dependency, of criminal transactions, of ways of life that are often well hidden. They are unseen events made visible.

These are a small selection of the near 150 bags I have mapped so far. My family are disgusted with me.”
