For many, taking out the trash is a dreaded chore. It's smelly, it's wet and it's messy. You wouldn't dare to go through what's inside, let alone take it out and lay in a pile of your own trash.

But that's exactly what L.A.-based photographer Gregg Segal is doing in his new series called "7 Days of Garbage." In this edition of Picture This, we spoke with Segal, who has been documenting people's garbage footprints. 

He joined Take Two on Monday to talk more about what prompted him to take on this project and what he hopes people take away from it.
