Studio photography + Photoshop
Theme_ Island
Concept_
_The idea for this project sparked upon noticing the colorful mobs of plastic bags filled with household waste that are left on city streets, patiently waiting to be disposed. Like small islands, these piles of garbage stand disperse, each in front of a different doorstep, but yet fading naturally into the urban landscape.
_ The general attitude of dismissal and normalization towards the trash in our streets was thus expressed in our photography project. Each picture relates to a different aspect of a paradisiacal island, portraying the ocean, the beaches, and the forests, by using the same piles of colorful waste. However, we maintained the attitude of indifference in each character, set in superficiality and not acknowledging the current state of things. 
_ This is a critic to our blind consumerism society and the way we carelessly treat our planet.
