Auckland photographer launches Trash Vortex exhibition

Artstation_New_Artists_An exhibition of photographs documenting the extent of the rubbish problem in Auckland’s beautiful Hauraki Gulf is set to go on display.

Trash Vortex, by Delena Nathuran, from Te Atatu, is the outcome of an ongoing exploration into the topic of plastic waste in our oceans and environment.

Delena says her intention was to create a project that provokes conversation about this 21st century problem and provokes consideration of the use and consumption of single-use plastic.

“Ultimately a desire to encourage change to ensure the safety and longevity of our oceans and marine life underlies this body of work,” Delena says.

Nathuran has explored her topic through different mediums including studio still life, collage, medium and large format film and digital capture.

The exhibition will be on display at Artstation at 1 Ponsonby Road, Auckland, from April 17 to May 8.
