Trash Found in Ocean Collages by Mandy Barker

February 05, 2012

We know there is a lot of trash and plastic swimming in our oceans, but to actually see it collaged into one frame is downright alarming. Why is there a toothpaste tube swimming in the Pacific Ocean? Mandy Barker has created this photo series, Soup, where she takes plastics and trash found on the beach and collages them into one piece of art. With the well-conceived black background, if Barker wants us to feel disgusted with ourselves, the project is a major success.
