Aussie photographer transforms everyday objects into underwater sea creatures

The massive plastic trash vortex in the North Pacific is one of the world's most depressing environmental issues. It's terrifying, really. Just thinking about it is enough to send me into the fetal position. Melbourne-based photographer Kim Preston faces up to the problem of plastic pollution with "Plastic Pacific," a new series of photos that find everyday plastic objects trasformed into underwater sea creatures. She clearly has some photographic chops, and the series is an effective way to raise awareness about the devastating environmental impacts of oceanic plastic pollution. Good stuff.
