International award-winning British photographer Mandy Barker brings her exhibition SHELF-LIFE to Queenstown until end of January 2023 in partnership with the British Council Aotearoa New Zealand and the Pacific and the British High Commission in New Zealand.
SHELF-LIFE illustrates the array of plastic that has washed up on the remote, uninhabited Henderson Island, part of the Pitcairn Islands in the South Pacific – which is one of the largest Marine Protected Areas in the world.
Mandy Barker’s powerful images shine a light on the rising tide of plastic pollution – which not only pollutes the environment and harms marine life, but also contributes to global greenhouse gas emissions and exacerbates climate change.
