The idea of my Rubbish Paradise series is to call for each human on the planet to take action towards not polluted today and tomorrow. It combines two different aspects – art photography and documentary – for one goal, that is to make a step towards conscious tomorrow. On one hand, rubbish subjects are shown with art photography skills. On other hand, it is a series of documentary illustrations showing the areas of Nature which are constantly being polluted by various eco-barbarians.
"The author noticed what others don’t even see. She showed how Nature makes peculiar works of art, sometimes even masterpieces, from currently existing, but uncharacteristic to Nature tools, from human waste. As if raped but remaining noble, this is how our Nature is portrayed.", - Remigijus Kriukas, Lithuanian contemporary fine art glass artist.
Collecting rubbish from Nature still looks like a forbidden activity for most of us. With this photos series, I seek to encourage people to use plastic responsively while relaxing in Nature.
I also seek to reveal that not only sightseers left the rubbish on the beaches. One day, plastic producers should be officially recognized as the root of plastic contamination. More so, the contaminants from the ships, fishermen activity, and municipal lack of responsibility should be stressed
All the rubbish items presented in the series “Rubbish Paradise” were photographed without any specific adjustments of the objects (any rubbish object was not touched before photo shoot with the aim to present a documental, realistic view). The rubbish itself was further collected and brought to the nearest garbage bins.
Art / documentary series “Rubbish Paradise” is about the nowadays pollution situation along the Baltic Seaside.
