    Description: We are sustainable photo rep agency with presence in different countries in Latin America and Spain. Our purpose is to generate awareness about sustainability through images and to apply better practices with an adequate use and disposal of our electronic devices (including our photographic equipment), so as to reduce e-waste. Our proposal is to create an e-waste campaign for photographers where they can create an image inspired on the challenges and opportunities that e-waste represents.  At the end, the images will be compiled to create a fanzine.
