Exhibition “Human and the sea” (curated by Stefanie Schiller and Klaus Tiedge)

The photographs being presented here are the outcome of a unique competition. They represent a very special contribution towards the leading theme of this year’s »horizons zingst« Environmental Photo Festival: »S.O.S. – SAVE OUR SEAS«. It is all about the danger to the environment caused by the enormous amounts of plastic rubbish accumulating in our seas and oceans, resulting in the destruction of a habitat that is necessary for our survival. This threatening situation is caused by humanity’s thoughtless consumerism, which results in plastic making up three quarters of the rubbish in the oceans. Summed all together, about 13,000 plastic particles float around in every cubic kilometre of ocean. Considering the dramatic dimensions of the problem, these photographs aim to contribute towards a change of awareness on the issue.
