Photo Frames Made of Recycled Aluminium Cans

Thousands of trees are felled each year. Some of them are transformed into palettes which are lost, abandoned or burned. So why not think something like this : Cans + palettes = Le Cadre “frame”

The idea of this aluminium cans photo frame is after twelve or so treks throughout the world (Yémen, Iran, Ladak, Mongolia, Sumatra, Kirghisie, Equateur…), family and friends wanted to see, and see again, some of the ‘photos that had been taken. This led quite naturally to the idea of an exhibition.

But it seemed rather incongruous to present these ‘photos from “all over the world” in standard frames. What was needed was to invent a frame compatible with the ‘photos we intended to present (from regions off the beaten track whose crafts are at the same time rudimentary and exceptionally inventive). The frames could be made by Brahim in Yemen, Asiz in Indonesia, Anatoly in Kamchatka, Djarkin in Kerghisie using materials available to everyone: planks cut at an angle of 90°, glue (which can be produced by anyone anywhere in the world), nails, and aluminium drink cans for decoration.

After a year of trials and errors, these frames are at last as good as expected. You can find the exhibition which will take place in Nancy, France in May 2008.
