In these photographs, Legran and his team creatively express the need for society to pay close attention to its environmental state, highlighting the fact that pollution has unfortunately become a part of their immediate environment.


He describes how environmental pollution is quickly becoming a scourge in Congo:


“Today we found garbage everywhere, in our street, in gutters, rivers, oceans, beaches, forests... and we don’t pay attention to it. We have a dirty love affair with trash and we must change to it by taking care of our garbage properly to keep our environment safe“
