Description

No, I'm not telling you a story, and certainly not a fairy tale, nor is it a dream title, but it is pure and simple reality.
1.6 kilos of litter per inhabitant per year in Luxembourg (2020).
Multiply this by the 626,000 inhabitants (2020) and you get a total of 1001 tons of litter per year in Luxembourg.
This is 103 kilos of litter per km along our country roads.
This is 216 kilos of litter per km along our motorways.
This costs the Grand Duchy 1.2 million euros per year.
I take a picture of litter; the rubbish that people leave in our nature, their bathroom that they leave in the forest, their waste after a barbecue that they don't take away, their cigarette butts and cans that they throw out of the car, companies that don't recycle their rubble, etc.
Why do we do this? What is our motivation? Where is the respect for nature and for others? And what can we do about it?
I'm not only interested in the issue of littering, but also in our consumer behaviour and our wasteful society, which is a major contributor to this problem.
Why do we buy so much? Why do we simply replace things instead of repairing them? What can we do about it?

About

My name is Jessica Theis, I have been a freelance photographer since 2005 and I am the leader of two different projects selected by Esch2022. I have been taking photographs since I was 16 years old. I was fascinated and still am by the fact that a photo can say more than 1000 words. Isn't that what every photographer is looking for? To express something? To say something? And that is thanks to a camera, a black box with a small hole in it, where light enters and is recorded on film, where a curtain opens and closes like in a play. It's still fascinating to me. I see myself as a simple and honest person, I am 39 years old, married and have two small children. I have been working as a commercial photographer since 2005. In 2016 I founded a photography studio in Op der Schock in Rédange-Attert which allowed me to take a step back from my commercial photography. This step back freed me to think about two big personal projects. I proposed these two projects to Esch2022 and received approval in principle (category 1) for both projects. Because of my social commitment, I am also interested in social issues, important issues that are worth discussing.
