It’s unseasonably warm as a group of Suffolk friends gather at Duxbury Beach for a photo shoot. Courtney Bouchard touches the water. It’s numbingly cold, and she’s going to be plunging in on this early-November day.
But these photos aren’t about comfort. Quite the opposite.
The oceans are awash in human-produced pollution, and student Christian Morris aims to show what that means to birds and sea creatures by representing a human in dire straits. He drapes Bouchard in a necklace of plastic bottles, has her twist plastic rings around her hands and neck, and simulates an oil slick with black body paint.
