Planet or Plastic?


National Geographic magazine has just launched an informative and shockingly revealing campaign called Planet or Plastic? and it is something that we all need to see and learn from.




These powerful and heartbreaking images vividly illustrate the damage that 9 million tonnes of plastic waste each year does to our environment and wildlife, and are the beginning of what will be a multi-year initiative to significantly reduce it. Scientists and researchers from the magazine hope to fill knowledge gaps about the long-term impacts of plastic, as it dissolves into microscopic particles that eventually enter our food chain. They also aim to gain a better understanding of its journey from the source here on land, all the way down to the deepest depths of remote ocean floors.

Falling Through Time



Barbara Cole, whose work can be seen on Bau-Xi Gallery’s booth at Photo London, is a Canadian artist known for her ethereal underwater photography which emulates painting both stylistically and technically. Cole submerges herself, her models, her equipment, and her materials as she layers, builds, and blends her composition underwater. Her work utilizes the lens of water to explore and transform figurative qualities, and to re-envision the nature of our relationships to our surroundings. Cole’s series tend to be crafted all within lens, avoiding digital manipulation as much as possible.
