Transcend

Transcend is a series of environmentally inspired colour photographs featuring models covered in plastic. These photographs were taken in a variety of locations in Cardiff, Wales, in order to reflect and raise awareness of how litter pollutes our green spaces. I juxtapose the synthetic plastic with the living and natural. To reflect the feeling of being stuck inside our planet’s saturation with plastic, each model holds a different pose which simulates being trapped by this material. The clothing on the models points to the immensity of this issue, covered as we constantly are by these pollutants. But Transcend is also energised by the suggestive power of each individual to make better choices. I aim, here, to motivate people to take action, unwrap yourself and your desires from plastics in every form and strive toward more positive behaviour. Help our planet reclaim its health.
