Les quatre photographes de générations différentes nous proposent un regard varié sur la thématique très actuelle des matériaux recyclés. Une vision engagée pour Didier Rueff, plus distancée pour Baptiste Coulon, Dylan Perrenoud et Cyril Vandenbeusch, qui détournent et mettent en scène les objets récupérés. Quant à Gérard Luthi, il se concentre sur l’omniprésence du plastique dans notre quotidien.
