Whilst Carolyn Doucette’s work comments on the environmental Issues with consumerism rather than the personal/psychological issues I am exploring, it is important to look at any practitioner who is using their photography to try and point out issues. Doucette’s work takes a company character and places it in the real place of resource, making us as the spectator think about where our products are coming from and how companies are avoiding the environmental issues of their product by placing a colourful big eyed character on their products.
