Life wrapped in plastic
My name is Natalie Krpushenko and my main passion is the ocean. My very best pictures were taken under water and I am the happiest person when I can spend hours under water. Unfortunately, with the beauty, comes the downside - I get to see all the plastic that gets to the shores. And the problem just keeps getting bigger. So I asked my models to try t pose under water wrapped in plastic - as if they were an animal caught up in the plastic. I hope the feeling of helplessness that they experienced will help people to become more conscious about the planet we get to live on.
