Mr. Rob Arnold, picked up 100 yards of Tregantle Beach in Cornwall. He collected more than 35 bags of plastic trash. He says this year is the dirties he has ever seen the beaches, and decided to document his find in a series of photographs. Beautiful and terrifying, the photographs tell a compelling story about the marine litter issue.
“There were also hundreds of pairs of Lego flippers and countless other plastic parts of modelling sets. It total Mr Arnold picked up 240 Lego flippers, which washed up on the beach from the Lego container spill in 1997”
This finished piece of art features fishing beads, which are often lost when the line and tackle becomes snagged on rocks. It also features BB gun pellets most likely from land base sources, entering the sea via drains and rivers
Mr Arnold captured the painstaking proces he went through to collect, treat and assemble his artworks. Pictured: Sieving microplastics on the drive.
