Being interested in ocean related environment issues I’m saddened by the devastating impact plastics have on our seas. I have started to create my own photographic plates from washed up plastic bottles. I’m intrigued by the journeys the plastic must have gone through and how long they’ve been exposed to the elements, moving with the tides. As plastic bottles take 450 years to biodegrade their journeys might have been very long. Every scratch is a memory and a trace of that journey.
