The Washed Up photo series by Alejandro Duran, a Mexico-born and New York based artist, is both a beautiful and important statement. He “addresses the issue of plastic pollution making its way across the ocean and onto the shores of Sian Ka’an, Mexico’s largest federally-protected reserve” collecting wash up debris and trash. Alejandro has visited forty-two nations on six continents. “He conflates the hand of man and nature, distributing the objects the way the waves would, like wind-scattered seed or roots tunneling through soil, echoing the organic forms of the surrounding landscape.” The photographic results are stunning and eye opening.
