Hazmat Surfing – Sad future of the oceans

2015-08-07 // photography

With his Hazmat Surfing series, photographer Michael Dyrland offers a frightening and pessimistic vision of the future of the oceans and the pollution of our planet featuring surfers equipped with chemical protective suits. This series was conducted on Venice Beach in Los Angeles, where pollution alarmingly rises for a few days each time heavy rains fall on the region, causing the discharge of polluted waters directly into the ocean… A dark and sad phenomenon that can be found around every major coastal cities of the world, whose water treatment systems are unable to contain this sudden influx. A series created in collaboration with the Surfrider Foundation.
