Abandoned Clothing Factory Raises Awareness

ID: 1499685

This talented photographer’s mammoth project inside an abandoned clothing factory looks to shed light on the real impact the clothing industry has on the environment.

Ben Von Wong and sustainability expert Laura Francois discovered the abandoned, dust-filled factory in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in which were mounds upon mounds of disused clothes.

After sifting through the piles, Ben, 31, said that he wanted to create an installation that showed just “where are clothes born.”

It is estimated that 2,500 kilograms of clothing are purchased by the average person in their lifetime, and so Ben and Laura set out to make three giant structures using this amount of garments.
