Australia-based photographer Kim Preston draws the attention on plastic pollution of marine ecosystems. With a series of brilliant pictures, titled Plastic Pacific, she explores the devastating impact of plastics accumulation in the oceans by transforming everyday household objects into sea creatures.

Fluctuating into the deep blue, plastic objects resemble the sea creatures affected with marine trash: fishes, jellies, polyps and corals. Let’s hope these plastic debris won’t become the only ocean inhabitants!

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
