Gallery: WASHED UP: Alejandro Durán Turns Mexican Ocean Trash Into Powe...

 
Durán collects together waste to make a big statement.

Through the course of the project, documented with this striking photo series, Durán has identified washed up products from as many as 42 countries. His work illuminates the “far-reaching impact of our disposable culture” and environmental concerns regarding vast quantities of waste materials.

Reasserting this trash as art, ‘Washed Up’ suggests we change the way we perceive products, collecting together our ‘waste’ to demonstrate the consequences of casually discarding products.
