Mandy Barker (b. 1964, UK) is an international award-winning photographer whose work involving marine plastic debris over the past 12 years has received global recognition. Working with scientists she aims to raise awareness about plastic pollution in the world's oceans whilst highlighting the harmful effect on marine life and ultimately ourselves.

Her work has been exhibited world-wide from MoMA Museum of Modern Art, and the United Nations headquarters in New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and the Science and Technology Park in Hong Kong. Barker takes part in key expeditions, alongside scientists, to some of the most remote places on earth to represent the scale of the marine plastic problem with the intention of leading the viewer to take action.
Mandy's worldwide reputation since she last spoke to us in 2014 is due to her drive, imagination and commitment to her work and this is a great opportunity to find out more about how she has developed this over the past 8 years.
