Plastic, Ahoy! Investigating the Great Pacific Garbage Patch photographer Annie Crawley sailed aboard New Horizon to the North Pacific Central Gyre with SEAPLEX scientists Miriam Goldstein, Chelsea Rochman, and Darcy Taniguchi–the lone photograher/videographer on the expedition. Her job? To capture the cutting-edge study of plastic in the Pacific. I’d like to share with you how she prepared for the journey–here’s her story in her own words:
“I left my offices at 8:00 am to drive down to San Diego as the only person joining the SEAPLEX expedition as photographer and filmmaker. I had a lot of equipment to organize: 7 cases of equipment and one small bag of clothes and personal items! For this end of the journey keeping the number of bags down was not crucial, but when we returned we were going to be landing in Oregon and I was going to have to fly home. I could not even imagine flying with all of my equipment on my own.” Read more of Annie’s story.
