Humans Tangled in Ocean Trash


Trash in our oceans is a huge problem. Wildlife routinely gets caught and snarled in our careless plastic, debris and other junk. While most of us are aware of this issue, it’s easy to turn a blind eye, removing ourselves from the problem, and the solution.  Jeremy Carroll has a series of photos showing humans ensnared in ocean junk, trying to bring a sense of humanity to the issue, while showing how destructive our careless actions are.

“Today’s state of ocean pollution is affecting marine wildlife in a dramatic way. [We] humans are responsible for this disaster and we are yet to suffer the consequences. This photographic work translates the issues marine wildlife is facing in regards to marine pollution by creating a human analogy on plastic ingestion and entanglement.”
