ARTISTS STATEMENT - 

Plastic Fish is an underwater photographic series with still life botanical arrangements and living creatures existing alongside man made plastics, seeking to represent a truth and vulnerability of the current state of our natural world.

This series of images is an invitation into a vibrant world abundant with iridescent objects, where fish dwell amongst opulent florals, an illusion of beauty & life.

Depth and space evoke a sense of the mysterious and time appears to slow down.

Beneath the surface, beauty reveals a darker truth, fragility, futility and the acute vulnerability of nature at the hands of humans, as we overwhelm all living things with our own disposable culture.
