Photographer Peter Tonningsen's Flotsam & Jetsam series consists of discarded objects from the sea, collected after they've washed up on the shores of San Francisco Bay. Peter then photographs them, afterwards arranging them into groups — thereby changing the context of the objects while still making a quiet statement about the fragility of our marine environment. Delicately beautiful work.

Most plastic pollution at sea starts out on land as litter on beaches, streets and sidewalks. After plastics enter the marine environment they slowly photodegrade into smaller pieces that marine life can mistake for food, sometimes with fatal results. Ocean gyres concentrate plastic pollution in five main areas of the world’s ocean and various research groups are bringing back alarming data documenting plastics impacts.

Peter Tonningsen | Flotsam Jetsam | Flotsam & Jetsam forms a unique dialog about the use, condition, and fragility of the marine environment by looking at discarded objects connected to the sea; things he has collected from the shorelines of San Francisco Bay that have been either left behind or washed ashore with the ebb and flow of the tides. | http://www.petertonningsen.com/movie.html

SCI INFO SHEET: Human impacts on marine environments. Throughout human existence we have relied on the oceans – for food, as a waste dump, for recreation, for economic opportunities and so on. However, it’s not only our activities in the marine environment that affect life in the sea – it’s also the things we do on land.
