Mandy Barker is a recent graduate student from UK and her artistic direction has evolved from graphic design to photography and is currently focused on contemporary practice. Her work is brilliant!
Entitled SOUP and named after the term given to plastic debris in the sea, this series of images aim to engage with, and stimulate an emotional response in the viewer by combining a contradiction between initial aesthetic attraction and social awareness.
All the plastics photographed have been salvaged from beaches around the world and represent a global collection of debris that has existed for varying amounts of time in the world’s oceans (
very conscious way to work).
The captions record the plastic ingredients in each image providing the viewer with the realization and facts of what exists in the sea.
