Evie Webb is a photographer interested in socio-political realities and pressing issues in a rapidly changing world – especially those which are often overlooked on the large-scale. For example, her recent work has negotiated the damaging effects plastic has on the planet – as a material now entering the geological record due to its life span lasting between 450 and 5,000 years. Webb draws attention to humanity’s complacency and growing acclimatisation to destruction. In the featured images, she offers a kind of visual antidote: depicting beauty in decay and decline – focusing on organic life cycles. She exemplifies the innate merit, necessity and virtue of mortality and the ageing process, harking back to Dutch Vanitas.
