“Through the images what I was trying to convey was the process of cotton production as well as interspersing portraits of people affected by the demands for more, cheaper cotton. The process of cotton production was important to me because it’s a long one, from the seed to shelf there are a lot of people and work involved, it takes a long time and a lot of care from the farmer for the seed to grow into a plant which can then be transformed into cotton, without considering the dying, designing, stitching, production and transportation it is a long process, and when you think about the price of a t-shirt in Primark and consider the supply chain it just does not make sense.”
