This is Alexa. We lived together for about three years and broke up when she had to go off and do her own thing. Now our paths occasionally cross through work, which is cool, and she always lets me shoot an extra roll of her being “normal.”
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is estimated to be 100 million tons of trash floating in the Pacific and could be 2X as large as the continental U.S. and miles deep––no one knows exactly. Regardless, it’s strangling the ocean. These gorgeous pics by Mandy Barker via Tree Hugger shows how the Ocean tries to heal itself by breaking these plastics down…to no avail.
“"I felt by enticing the viewer to discover the meaning in this way would create a more lasting impact and message of awareness… All the images are created to represent the disturbing statistics of dispersed plastics having no boundaries."
