Haunting Imagery of Just How Callous We Can Be With Our Fragile Reefs

beer-can-coral-2I was lurking around Keoki Stender’s interweb portfolio in search of artwork for my new apartment when I stumbled upon this off-putting series titled “Marine Debris”. Shameful, tragic images of floating plastic and various human waste made me nauseous but really made me think. Am I responsible on level for some of this? Do I always recycle or am I guilty of sheer laziness from time to time? Do I always cut the plastic from my six-packs to ensure marine life doesn’t end up snagged in it’s grip? Short answer – no. Do I try? Of course. These photos made me incredibly sad. I’ll be ordering a few as a stark reminder of how just being ever so slightly environmentally conscious can make a vast difference to the health of the reefs we adore. Please take the time to click through the photos – I can only post so many here. Also, be sure to peruse his other works as it’s all gorgeous. Keoki was responsible as the man behind the lens of that face-melting photograph of the Fuscipennis I posted about a few months ago. Seriously – don’t contribute to this mess. Keoki, please make this an ongoing series – it’s quite difficult to look at but all the more necessary.
