A fine art photobook highlighting environmental disaster with a unique collection of plankton 'specimen' photographs, revealed to be beautifully photographed objects of plastic debris recovered off the southern shores of Ireland. The antique design reflects on a time before plastic while exposing the urgent issue of severe pollution in our natural marine environment.
"Mandy Barker's work on plastic has been developing for some time. In its latest advance, she looks at micro-particles of plastic as a species of a lunatic plankton, floating about the sea, and she has included a rather wonderful pastiche book of old-fashioned science as a way of getting us into her subject." - Francis Hodgson, Photography critic
"Her images could be mistaken for Victorian glass-plate photographs; in fact they are ornate, long-exposure studies of the plastic debris that pollutes beaches in and around Cobh in Cork Harbour, Ireland." - Tom Seymour, British Journal of Photography
"Beyond Drifting is a clever critique of a massive environmental problem - and, in focusing in on one small area of Ireland in particular, Barker highlights a global issue." - Mark Sinclair, Creative Review
