Punks and Pollution
Punks and Pollution is an 11 - part photographic response to the detrimental and possibly irreversible effect climate change and fast fashion is having on the environment and society. Ball approaches this by taking fashion editorial type photographs in a non-typical manner. She sources domestic materials from the street and through general consumption, combining these with second hand clothing to create raw DIY (Do It Yourself) looks to photograph on a model, inspired by 1970s punk styling. This styling response includes aspects such as, safety pins, chains, heavy eye make – up and layering of materials – for example: plastic. This photographic approach is rationalised by the contradictions that lie within Ball’s photographic practice and the fashion industry.
