‘Plastic suffocation’ is an ongoing project that I have created which conveys the message that plastics are undoubtedly overused as a means of packaging. Other means of packaging are available yet are too expensive to differ from the cheap and durable alternative. We are blinded by our greed to use the cheapest means of packaging available despite the cost it has on our environment, suffocating ourselves along with nature. I portray that message by framing the model with plastics over their head, trapping all respiratory systems and blocking sight, whilst -in some- using packaged items as props, it visualises how blind we are to the negative outcomes that come with plastics and that we’re slowly but surely suffocating ourselves with the overuse of unnecessary plastic. All plastics used within my images have been collected by myself through ordinary means – shopping for example. Demonstrating how easy it is to get our hands on these materials.
