Creating the following photographs I was inspired by my walks in the nature around contaminated waters. I started to see up close the impact of the toxic liquids on the living creatures. I brought the float out representatives of fauna and flora to the studio, and I covered them in old motor oil as a symbol of the pollution. By using a studio light and more additional lightshapers I tried to point out the problem from my personal angle of view. The following photographs are a part of the series of my bachelor work made at the University of Tomas Bata in Zlin.
