Hazmat surfing in polluted oceans

Washington-based photographer Michael Dyrland was inspired by an unlikely and unpleasant event. Hoping to catch some surf off the coast of Los Angeles during a trip, the photographer instead encountered an ocean that was contaminated with ten billion gallons of runoff including sewage, garbage, and oil.

Seeing this incident as not an isolated event, but as a potential future, Dyrland teamed up with the Surfrider Foundation to develop the photography project HAZMAT Surfing, in order to raise awareness of what our future could be unless we take care of our oceans and our planet.
