Not Your Average Souvenir: Subversive Snowglobes Capture Dystopian Scenes In NYC

Miss Heather of the New York-based blog New York Shitty has a funny, subversive collection of snow globes called ‘Urban Renewal’.

The hand-crafted snow globes capture daily life and events in New York City such as Santacon, stop and frisk, and public nudity.

Miss Heather hit upon the idea of creating a souvenir from tourist-unfriendly places that people avoid. Apart from being humorous, the snow globes also represent the changes weathered by the community under the Bloomberg administration over the past 12 years.

Check out some of Miss Heather’s pieces below.
