This series of work was commissioned by India Dickinson for an exhibition in the Isle of Wight at a new project space, The Defenceless Container, that opened on July the 30th 2016. The whole exhibition aimed to raise awareness of overfishing of our seas in support of The Blue Marine Foundation. These images portray the last humans searching our empty oceans for fish that have become extinct as a result of previous generations. 20% of the sale of all these works will be going to the Blue Marine Foundation to help develop their Solent Oyster Restoration Project, which aims to reseed 10million oysters by 2020 to rebuild the ecosystem that was once there
All photographs are in an edition of 15 and also available in a larger size of 60x70cm.
