Group Description

This is the Flickr Group dedicated to the theme "Plastic Life" for Backlight Magazine Issue 3 !

" Plastic life"
The French poet Lamartine once asked; " inanimate objects, do you have a soul?" This is what we'll attempt to discover in issue 3. A reflection of a society of mass consumption where plastic is a favourite material for designers, but also the first pollutant that litters our landfills and oceans. Whether it be modelled, moulded, thrown away, destroyed or recycled, show us plastic, and plasticity, in all it's shapes and forms :)

You can post your photos until august 15 2012.

We will then open the votes to the public.

For more chances to get published do not hesitate to post some of your awesome pics in the other theme for Issue 3: Angles and curves
