This works focus on using cameraless photography to explore the relationship between humans and the environment. The work shows natural or man-made objects pro induced in the current surroundings as creative elements. The series of this project uses photogram techniques to take pictures which means placing garbage or digital negatives directly on top of the photosensitive paper for exposure. Viewers can see scattered and irregular objects in these brightly coloured series of works. These scattered translucent objects on the photographic paper are rubbish picked up from the beach in East Tilbury which is a village on the estuary that connects to the Thames. A part of the beach is also a former landfill, however. This landfill’s waste are going into the river with the tide, meanwhile, we also drink from the waters of the Thames.
