Uncontained Consumption: Oceanic Dumpster Views

Virginia Highland Books

Featuring work by: Jennifer McKinnon Richman

Please see this enhanced listing on

Jennifer McKinnon Richman's photographs appear to be seemingly painted seascapes featuring beaches and oceans. Upon closer inspection, however, white foamy waves become paint splatter resembling styrofoam; textured rolling waves instead appear to be plastic bags floating in the water; subtle ocean blue tones are revealed to be grease stains dotted with grains of dirt and gravel representing microbeads floating in the ocean. Carefully composited images consisting of bits and pieces found on the walls of dumpsters littering our streets, depict oceans consumed by plastic debris and waste.
