Photographer Antoine Repessé collected trash by not throwing it since 2011. He just wanted to make a point by doing that. He wanted to draw people’s attention to the silent problem which lie in our lives. He then created an incredible photo shoot to prove his point.
Over 70 cubic metres of trash: 1,600 milk bottles, 4,800 toilet rolls and 800 kg (~1,750 lb) of newspapers were collected in the process of collection.
“The choice of sorting the garbage gives a graphic effect. I tried to produce a perfect picture which evokes something disturbing.”
He thinks that he has addressed these silent problem in the photo shoot.
