In this series, I am taking a conceptual approach to comment on the abundance of plastic waste dumped in the oceans and its alarming danger our environment is facing. I begin by selecting the “eps” packaging material, which is largely used for the packing of various consumer goods and then I make structures from these packing materials to build my protagonist i.e. the man-made building and then finally, I photograph them against a natural landscape.
I am choosing to photograph these in the form of man-made constructions on water bodies / seashores to symbolically highlight the huge amount of litter found in the oceans. In a way, these are the buildings of consumerism spreading frantically across all the seas and we are totally oblivious and blind of their presence.
Holy Boulevard is a satirical photo-essay on our consumerist habitat discarding the plastic trash in the oceans and also our continued ignorance about this matter.
