  • Get Framed

    by Ellenboughn | 28th of May, 2008

  • The Trendspotting Trend*

    by Ellenboughn | 16th of August, 2007

  • Photos with a cause

    by Melodyanne | 18th of May, 2016

       Food waste is a serious issue in our world today. So much is thrown away either because we simply have too much or because it is not quite pretty enough to suit us. To demonstrate one way I prevent food waste I made a series of images dealing with feeding produce... More
