Photo Series

Aberrations is a series of images in which marine microorganisms are arranged alongside algae monocultures and chemical substances. Titled after a term used in biology and optics for defect or deviation from the norm, the images are composites made from raw footage of the film Reclaiming Vision.

The compositions zoom in on factors of local and global marine pollution, such as microplastics, oil spills, or sediments of pigments from industrial waste. Greatly enlarged, the photographic prints show aquatic life forms invisible to the human eye, yet highly affected by human activity.
