The 450 Year Old Mountain

These macro images are of a plastic bag, the kind that is used daily throughout society in shops and supermarkets for packaging.

The photographs are imagined landscapes of the Anthropocene, the current geological age where human activity is the dominant influence on climate and the environment. The name refers to the length of time it could take for this mountain of plastic to decay.
