The School of Photography winds down our FA17 semester at AAU with a shout to our students, past, present and future.
"I’ve been blessed as a photographer to experience some amazing places, but I hate when the beauty of a location is tainted with trash," says MFA alumnus Weston Fuller.
This summer, Fuller teamed up with Surfrider Foundation to create PLASTIC SURF, a series of conceptual composites that highlight the proliferation of single use plastics in our ocean waters.
Ultimately, Fuller wants us to take responsibility for the products we consume by recycling and properly disposing of trash.
Pictured below are the plastic items Fuller found on the beaches in Southern California.
Says Fuller, "I wish I could say that it took me awhile to find and collect the items pictured above, but it didn’t. The number one most found items were bottles or bottle caps. Cups, straws and bags came in a close second."
