Photographs Document Ocean Debris Salvaged From Beaches Around The World
The photography series represents a global collection of trash that exists within the earth's oceans.
Looking at these innovative images, it may seem as though UK photographer, Mandy Barker took cues from the I Spy children’s book series. However, a closer look reveals an intelligent stance on raising awareness about ocean debris. Even while reading this, the massive mound of trash, known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is floating around in the north Pacific Ocean. As sometimes imagined, it is not entirely a solid mass, but a marine soup whose main ingredient is floating plastic debris. Drawing inspiration from the environmental disaster, Barker created Soup, a photography series capturing trash salvaged from beaches all over the world.
