Seven images of collections of plastic pollution found on the coast of the UK. The environment has been an issue for me for a long time. Growing up with the sea at my window, the marine landscape is still a place I long for, dream about, and find inspiration in. I have a deep love for our coastlines and sea and understand how vital they are to global environmental harmony.

Marine plastics are a growing concern for environmentalists and scientists. Plastic is not an inert substance, and leaches harmful chemicals into its environment constantly. That's all the plastic you use, in your home in your lunch box, through your clothes, cars, furniture, flooring etc. All bleeding chemicals into the atmosphere into the air into the earth and into the sea. But try and stop using it, it's pretty impossible.

    Brilliant concept and execution. How can something you've made look so beautiful be so poisonous? The 'swords' image is super, but the chipped and cracked plastic spoons is a telling image.
