BLIND TO PLASTIC

A portrait series inspired from today’s plastic pollution. In this series, dramatic lighting highlights models in contorted poses with blindfolds made of bubble wrap. Photographer, Angelica Pasquali, conveys a sense of both protected ignorance and frustration in “Blind To Plastic”. She hopes this series not only captures the attention of art-lovers, but brings a call to action to remove our protected-layer of ignorance to our climate crisis and plastic pollution.

 

During the process of this series, Angelica first started with plastic wrap for the blindfolds but morally struggled using plastic even for the sake of art. After careful consideration, Ms.Pasquali decided to use bubble wrap as it did not have to be thrown away after its usage in the series. The bubble wrap also is significant as bubble wrap is used to protect fragile objects. In this case, it protects our eyes from the fragile climate conditions right in front of us. 

There are so many alternatives to avoid plastic usage both on local and global levels in all areas of life. Whether the lifestyle changes are big or small, it's time we stare this climate emergency in the face and take action. As well as the endless supply of resources online, you can follow Angelica Pasquali for sustainable advice as well.
