Plastic World - Laura Cunningham

Plastic World - Laura Cunningham

Laura Cunningham is a British photographer, living in Shropshire in the UK. She is currently in her final year at Wolverhampton University studying for a Ba Hons in Photography. During this time she has developed a passion for documenting the environment and issues that have an impact on it. Her practice looks at human activity and the effect it has on the natural environment.

Her latest project 'Plastic World' highlights the issue of plastic pollution. The images present the idea of a world suffocated by plastic. The scenes in the images can not be observed without the obstruction of the plastic in the forefront of the photo. She wants to draw attention to the damage and problems that the high rate of consumption and pollution of the material is having.

Last year it was reported that a million plastic bottles were bought every minute and that number was predicted to increase by 20% by 2021. Plastic is becoming more commonly seen littering natural spaces and damaging the local wildlife that live there, as well as seriously polluting our oceans, with tonnes of plastic being dumped into the oceans every year. This is a problem that needs to be addressed now and on a global scale. By creating work highlighting this problem, 'Plastic World' hopes to encourage its viewer to think how they themselves can help reduce their consumption and waste of plastic.
