A series of powerful and unnerving images spelling out the dangers of failing to clean up the seas have been unveiled by a Cornish environmental group.
Featuring a trio of surfers apparently trapped in jars, the pictures were created by acclaimed photographer Scott Rhea for Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) as part of their Protect Our Waves campaign.
The series depicts surfers preserved in specimen jars, exploring the theme of extinction and highlighting the environmental issues that threaten UK waves.
Hugo Tagholm, chief executive of Surfers Against Sewage said: "Surfers Against Sewage is excited to launch these stunning, strangely beautiful yet dystopian images as part of the Protect Our Waves campaign, highlighting the environmental threats to UK surfing."
Mr Rhea said the images highlighted a matter of vital importance.
"Marine protection is an issue I care passionately about and I hope that my contribution will shine a light on the issues SAS is addressing to protect waves, oceans and beaches for everyone.
"I have had first-hand experience living in areas where raw sewage was being dumped and people had to choose between their health or enjoying the ocean.
"This is a decision that nobody should ever have to make."
Over the past year, the Protect Our Waves petition has received tens of thousands of signatures of support. It calls for better protection for the coastal environment and those that use it.
Next week, on October 22, SAS campaigners will be joined by 11-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater to discuss Protect Our Waves issues with MPs at the Palace of Westminster.
The petition will then be delivered to 10 Downing Street.
