“Basic Necessities” addresses the mass use of plastic packaging in daily life. The commodities photographed are influenced by the published government guidelines which stated that people could only purchase "basic necessities" during the COVID-19 crisis. This definition was broadly open to interpretation by the public, as differing views of essential and luxury items became blurred. This is conveyed through the medium of pinhole photography with cameras constructed from plastic waste. Natural household ingredients were also used as developing agents in order to be environmentally considerate.
