Photographer Stores His Trash For 4 Years And Then Creates A Powerful Photo Series



Back in 2011, photographer Antoine Repessé stopped throwing away his recyclable trash to make a point. Four years later he starts turning that point into a powerful photo series. He called ‘#365 Unpacked’, which challenges us to rethink our role as consumers.

During the 4 year period, the Lille-based artist has accumulated over 70 cubic metres of trash: 1,600 milk bottles, 4,800 toilet rolls, and 800 kg (~1,750 lb) of newspapers, all of which he then separated for an even stronger visual impact.

“I wanted to give an aesthetic dimension to my work,” he explains. “The choice of sorting the garbage gives a graphic effect. I tried to produce a perfect picture which evokes something disturbing.”

With his series, Antoine tackles the main obstacle for kickstarting the big changes in waste management or global warming.

“We’re often told about the quantity of waste we produce, but I think the impact of a picture can be more powerful than a ton of words,” remarks Repessé. “I hope my project can inspire change,” – and so do we.
