Staudinger Franke 42607284 268683407116711 6094531801507398600 N

The “Plastic Ocean” series, crafted by the Austrian studio Staudinger + Franke, showcases a powerful visual narrative aimed at highlighting the urgent need to protect our oceans from plastic pollution.

This collection presents stunning underwater portraits of models, each encircled by a variety of discarded plastic items, meticulously gathered from Italy’s coastal areas. The photographs strikingly contrast the elegance of human forms with the distressing intrusion of plastic waste, serving not only as a feast for the eyes but also as a critical commentary on the environmental catastrophe of plastic pollution afflicting our seas.
