Exciting news, my series on ocean plastics has been awarded GOLD by the Association of Photographers.

I created these images, part of a larger series, to highlight the overwhelming quantities of discarded plastics that are polluting and choking our oceans. I hope exposure surrounding the AOP awards will help highlight the issue, and I am pleased to see there is already coverage on the BBC website and in today’s Guardian.

Meanwhile my thanks to Art Buyer & Creative Producer Kathy Howes who judged the Still Life & Object category and chose my series, and Creative Director Geoff Waring for encouraging me to explore my ideas in still life. As photographers we generally and naturally fall into shooting a particular genre. I am known for photographing people and therefore feel a greater achievement to have my work appreciated across genres.

On a final note, apparently I am the first woman to be a two times recipient of an AOP gold, which makes me extra proud.

All At Sea is how so many of us are feeling at this critical time in our history. But this editorial was created to highlight another great threat to our world, the deluge of discarded plastics that are choking and poisoning our oceans.wendy_carrig_1201wendy_carrig_1149
“I became attracted to the man made flotsam + jetsam : seaworn metal + brightly coloured plastics… there was so much of it that if the mood took me I could choose objects by theme or colour.”

“The quantity of plastic I have collected from my local beach serves as a reminder of the terrible damage we are doing to the environment. It is our collective responsibility to reuse & recycle”
