Plastic Sea: Marine Debris Artworks by Mandy Barker
Award-winning photographer Mandy Barker has received global recognition for raising awareness about plastic pollution with her series of artworks created using marine plastic debris.
“The aim of my work is to engage with and stimulate an emotional response in the viewer by combining a contradiction between initial aesthetic attraction along with the subsequent message of awareness. The research process is a vital part of my development as the images I make are based on scientific fact which is essential to the integrity of my work. The impact of oceanic waste is an area I am committed to pursuing through visual interpretation and in collaboration with science, hoping it will ultimately lead to positive action in tackling this increasing environmental problem which of current global concern.“
