Entry Description

Life Vest Cemetery is a mountain of discarded life vest used by the hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other war-torn and conflict-ridden countries who passed through the small island of Lesvos, Greece, in 2015 and 2016 in search of safety and a better life in Europe. I have selected the categories of Man, Earth and Water because these life vests pollute the earth and water due to mankind and man-made wars.
