I had the great honor of teaming up with Plastic Soup Foundation and be a part of the great work they do against plastics with a photo-exhibition at their first international ‘Plastic Health Summit’, on October 4th in Amsterdam. The series exhibited is called ‘Living in Plastic and Pollution’

This was the first summit in the world to discuss the enormous impact of plastic and micro-plastics in human health. Mind-blowing information was shared by scientists, inspiring companies and individuals who shared what they are actually doing to replace plastic, and most importantly this event for sure marked the beginning of the end of the plastic era, which I believe is totally possible.
The message is clear, plastic is not only a threat to our environment, but to our own bodies and health.

From June 19th, 2019 my exhibition ‘Where Does Your Plastic Go’ is a part of the ‘Operatie Jonas’ project of WWF Nederland. Until June 26th, we showcased them at the City Hall of Katwijk in the Province of Zuid-Holland, and now the exhibition continues at the headquarters of WWF in the city of Zeest until September 2019.

‘Mar de plástico’ (A Sea of Plastic) exhibition in Guayaquil, Ecuador

On January and February of 2019, I traveled through Ecuador meeting people and documenting plastic pollution in different provinces covering the coast, highlands, and the Amazon. That’s how Mar De Plástico (A Sea Of Plastic) was born: with the purpose of showcasing the findings, specifically, from the coastal province of Santa Elena.

A Sea Of Plastic is part of my ongoing project, “Where Does My Plastic Go?”, which documents plastic pollution around the world and that aims to create environmental awareness by means of visual storytelling.

With the support of the city hall of Guayaquil, M.I. Municipalidad de Guayaquil, and Plaza Guayarte
the exhibition is open the whole month of March, 7 days a week.

Venue: Plaza Guayarte, white gallery. Guayaquil, Ecuador
Date: March 1st – March 31st, 2019
Time: 9:00 – 23:00
