Benjamin Montague (Cincinnati, OH) is an associate professor in photography at Wright State University. In this photographic series he created images of items collected from urban and rural waterways and oceans. “Using a floatation method and filters, Montague is able to separate much of the plastic material from the samples to be photographed. These are not intended to be scientific studies; their purpose is to show how ubiquitous microplastics have become in the environment.”
