Mermaids & Plastics

At the local London Marathon, alongside the Thames, Sarah had been struck by thousands of plastic bottles discarded by runners. What if these were killing the mermaids? Sarah began a series of sunprints exploring this. The mythical females being “trapped” in a surreal world below the waterline. Sun, real river water, seaweed, and plastics combined their magic to produce this series from Nature.
