The series started out as a means of understanding the material which has so aggressively taken over our geographies – plastic, where its production and usage contribute to choking of our ecosystem which gravely affect our bodies, the marine and wild life all over the world.
These photographs were created with the intent to put plastic on a false pedestal hailing it as a visual distraction. This distraction creates enough noise that it demands revaluation of our relationship with the environment.
