"Chromatic Wasteland" is a personal project made by Photographer Maciek Miloch and Set Designer Anna Nizio. Nowadays, people produce about 300 million tonnes of plastic waste every year. That's nearly equivalent to the weight of the entire human population.

Photographs are abstract still life compositions that need time to decode specific objects that were used to construct them – plastic waste that we collected for 3 weeks. The process of collecting the waste for the project made us how much plastic is used and that most of the products available on the market are packed in it.

Sculptures of the plastic were photographed using phenomena of photoelasticity. Plastic's stress distribution within the material began to show iridescent, magical (jet appearing toxic at the same time) color spectrums invisible in normal lighting conditions.
