About this project
“Only we humans make waste that nature can?t digest.” Charles Moore,
In 2013 the Anchorage Museum and Alaska SeaLife Center took an
international team of artists, scientists and educators to the Alaska
coastline to observe, document and collect marine debris. Andy Hughes
was one of the invited as participants. This is a new special limited
edition book of selected images from his journey. The team traveled 500
nautical miles from Resurrection Bay along the Kenai Peninsula coast.
The expedition also undertook an intensive cleanup of Hallo Bay in
Katmai National Park, a remote area seeing an influx of debris from the
2011 Japanese Tsunami.
