Every day photographer Eddy de Azevedo walks his dog the beaches of Capbreton, a seaside town and fishing port in France. He says it is a spot where the Atlantic Ocean often deposits all kinds of garbage.
One day, he decided to collect some of these objects to photograph them in the sand as well as back in his studio. That’s how his Walking My Dog photo series began.
His particular obsession as a photography is with color and the gradations of hues and tints. It is a sad reality of the state of our oceans that he was able to collect enough material from many months of long walks to come up with his unique abstract art photography series.
There are 3 in the series. The first uses just cigarette lighters. The next includes all sorts of round objects such as bottle caps and jar lids. The third collection consist of a montage of discarded bottles in the sand. They form an incredible canvas representing mankind’s abuse of nature.
It might be a playful form of visual art but his work does bring home the message that the dumping of trash in our oceans has to stop!
