Alexander James' forthcoming exhibition Visions from the Shoreline serves as a timely and poetic testiment to the vitality of our environment and its importance in our cultual life. The exclsuive release of these illuminated photograms raises vital funds that directly help the artist's mission to create a sustainable and greener future for people living in the Maldives. All proceeds of this series of illuminated photograms series goes toward funding the infrastructure of a community-led plastic recycling facility in the Maldives.
Proceeds of Visions from the Shoreline go toward funding the infrastructure of a community-led plastic recycling facility in the Maldives. The purpose is to recycle plastic that is plaguing remote island nations around the world.

Plastic pollution is threatening the ecosystem, with locations such as Thilafushi, an artificial island created specifically for landfill, growing by a square metre every day. The artist Alexander James has, with his collaborators, developed a plastic recycling system - the first of its kind in this scale -due to be installed in Baa Atol, Maldives, which will allow plastic bottles to be transformed into sustainable replacement planks and building bricks by the local community. This will not only reduce the amount of waste produced by the population, but will also provide a viable alternative to digging up sand to produce building materials.
The recycling facility is due to launch in July 2018, but further funding is still needed. You can be a part of this incredible project by purchasing one of Alexander James's beautiful PhotoGrams, produced in the Maldives without a camera, using just found objects, photographic paper, and moon or sunlight. Each PhotoGram is unique, and all proceeds will be used to fund the plastic recycling facility that can process up to 10,000 bottles a day.
