Becky Wilkes

Ditched

Azle, Texas photographer, Becky Wilkes’ exhibit  “Ditched” contains 10 of her original obsessions, gleaned from the nearly 6,000 pieces of trash collected by Wilkes during her 1 year “odd-yssey”, when she combed 1 mile of newly revealed lakefront for trash during the multiyear drought of 2014-15. 

It was not until spring floods of 2015 that Wilkes understood the migratory nature of trash in our waterways flowing from our drainage ditches and roadways. Eagle Mountain Lake, while only 14 square miles in size, is fed by a watershed of over 850 square miles. Unlike the trash entering our oceans, this debris is trapped inland in our fresh water supply, restrained by lakes and dams.
