I came across Alison’s latest limited handmade zine series “Plasticscapes” exploring land and seascapes through plastic waste, on a previous Visual Interviewees page in Kyle Myles. Just loved the concept explored not only photographically, but in its actually construction as a physical object. I think that becomes the immediate power of her art in my brief experience with it; in that although simple all the details are just right. Her response to question 2 illustrates that in what I would call one of the better quintessential airplane window shots I have ever come across. The indirect subtleties of her other answers are as intriguing as the photos themselves…check her links below for more:
