Ms. Bennett shares some of her environmental photos below. Of the first four images, she writes, “They are all on the theme of recycling. The two last images are flowers created from plastic bottles created by the artistic community in New Mills which was organized by Lyn Bannister who is also in charge of the local exhibitions run in the art lounge at the Beehive pub. They were displayed on the corner of high street in full display for the festival. The first two images were taken inside recycling bins outside New Mill’s Co-Operative. I really liked the contrast between the bottles and the color of the bins themselves. I like to have a strong theme of reuse and reinvention in my work.”
