In 2011, photographers Antoine Repessé quit discarding his recyclable waste to make a point. After four years he began transforming that point into an intense photograph arrangement he called ‘#365 Unpacked’, which moves us to reconsider our part as buyers.
Amid the 4 year time span, the Lille-based craftsman has aggregated more than 70 cubic meters of waste: 1,600 drain bottles, 4,800 can rolls, and 800 kg (~1,750 lb) of daily papers, all of which he at that point isolated for a much more grounded visual effect: “I needed to give a stylish measurement to my work,” he clarifies. “The decision of sorting the refuse gives a realistic impact. I attempted to create a flawless picture which brings out something irritating.”
With his arrangement, Antoine handles the primary obstruction for kickstarting the enormous changes in squander administration or a dangerous atmospheric devation – it’s the means by which imperceptible these issues are in our everyday lives: “We’re regularly told about the amount of waste we deliver, yet I think the effect of a photo can be more intense than a huge amount of words,” comments Repessé. “I trust my venture can move change,” – thus do we.
