Celebrate World Oceans Day at Largs Bay with Adelaide Artist Andrew Baines

Adelaide artist Andrew Baines is known for his surreal art, and particularly for his photography installations on South Australia's scenic coast. His resulting photography is quirky, amusing and often carries a powerful social message.

The United Nations has declared Thursday June 8 as World Oceans Day, a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future. It's a unique opportunity to honour, help protect, and conserve the world's oceans.

In his latest project, Andrew Baines has turned his sights on the problem of waste in our oceans, and specifically how they are being suffocated by micro-plastics. His latest art installation is designed to use shock treatment to illustrate and highlight this message in time for World Oceans Day. However, Andrew needs your help to create his imagery.
