For this project I chose the theme “Polluted Beauty”. (The title was borrowed from a song by the band Twiddle – click here). The book starts off showing chemical waste being dumped into the ocean, and it continues on to show the consequences that happen under the water’s surface. I manipulated images of sea creatures in a humorous and lighthearted way, however this is a serious issue that should be given more attention. If anything, this is my way to get people talking about it! I especially enjoy the last photo of the giant squid, because it’s as if he is coming out of the water to make us pay for the destruction of his home.
