Eleanor Leonne Bennett is a 16-year-old internationally award winning photographer and artist who has won first places with National Geographic,The World Photography Organisation, Nature’s Best Photography, Papworth Trust, Mencap, The Woodland trust and Postal Heritage. Her photography has been published in the Telegraph, The Guardian, BBC News Website and on the cover of books and magazines in the United states and Canada. Her art is globally exhibited, having shown work in London, Paris, Indonesia, Los Angeles, Florida, Washington, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Canada, Spain, Germany, Japan, Australia and The Environmental Photographer of the year Exhibition (2011) amongst many other locations. She was also the only person from the UK to have her work displayed in the National Geographic and Airbus run See The Bigger Picture global exhibition tour with the United Nations International Year Of Biodiversity 2010.

A series of images all taken in 2012. On themes covered I decided to reflect the beauty I find in recycling, wreckage, peace and strange and odd little things. The bag is one that resides in a charity shop with currently no buyers. The powder compact is one of my own. My favourite is the ill and lonely every envelope stuffed with the prescriptions of ill patients just in my town with only around 5,000 residents. A lot of the population is aged but I suspect the cheap stodgy food is a contributing factor to the poor health. White dove of peace was taken a few hundred yards from the previously mentioned photo near a pub. Estate agents fiend was taken smack bang in the middle of the two previous points in very early January.
