„Floating“ – An Impressive and Creepy Series by Photographer Andrew Brodhead
Eine ziemlich spooky und doch durchaus interessant daherkommende Serie präsentiert Andrew Brodhead aus San Francisco mit „Floating“. Menschliche Körper schweben hier wie Mumien an urbanen Settings sowie durch unberührte Ort in Mutter Natur… gehüllt in Plastikfolie. Zu seiner Inspiration ließ Brodhead folgendes verlauten: „Growing up in Savannah, Georgia, I worked at my parent’s health food store, and as a kid my daily job was to take out the recycling. Through the years I started to realize how much was not recyclable. I began to think about landfills and where everything goes. There are islands of plastic taking over the oceans, the earth is suffocating from plastic that never biodegrades, and our water and environment are leaching toxic estrogenic compounds. Visually, I want to convey the sacrifice we have made by our consumption and waste. The wrapped bodies represent invasive cocoons floating over vulnerable landscapes.“ Und so sieht das Ganze aus. Kuckt doch mal:
Named ‘Floating’, the series of photographer Andrew Brodhead is impressive and creepy at the same time. Each image shows human bodies wrapped like a mummy in plastic, hovering a few feet above the ground. Located in the absolute beauty of natural landscapes, a splitting contrast between the power of basic elements and the permanent hurt of the man-made evil is demonstrated. The ghostly look of the sunlight reflecting in folds of plastic provokes a fascinating image of swathed bodies hanging in the air for some mysterious purpose. As a defender of the environment, Andrew Brodhead uses a sweeping manner of expressing to protest against the environmental pollution through the excessive use of non-recyclable plastic.
