"One Euro (or 99 Cent) trash is a great symbol for the cruxes of globalisation and the destructive idea of mass consumption. Produced under awful conditions by the poorest, One Euro / 99 Cent products are a waste of everything.
I challenged myself as a photographer to create something beautiful from the mundane. The result are a series of sculptures, presented as art. The transformation from junk to help is now your turn."
