This series explores humanity’s undeniable impact on the environment. The bags are created during walks along the beach in which human waste on the shore is collected and then photographed among the stunning beach background from where they were gathered. They become strange new Protean creatures made of plastic and waste; a new species created by humanity and overpopulating our environment.

I have encountered a few other fellow beach cleaners during my walks. We agree that if everyone did their small part – by reducing the amount of their disposable waste and picking up a few bits of garbage regularly, we could defeat the growth of this invasive species.
