'Soup' by Mandy Barker Puts An Artistic Spin on Ocean Garbage

Garbage patches in various oceanic locations are a longstanding world pollution issue; however, it seems some individuals have tried to make the best of the current situation with projects such as 'Soup' by Mandy Barker.

This is an extremely unique project in which various parts of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch have been photographed to produce detailed pictures that look like amazing pieces of art. The water serves as a great canvas that contrasts with the various pieces of scraps floating upon it. The images tell a story as well, adding an element of sadness to the piece that furthers its artistic value.

Soup by Mandy Baker presents a bittersweet tone -- yes, the pictures look spectacular, but at what cost?
