Perry’s photography is not concerned with the campaigning rhetoric of straight environmental documentary. Rather it poetically alludes to what we might be leaving for future generations. – Skye Sherwin

It’s 10 years since I started photographing plastic bottles washed up on Pembrokeshire beaches and sad to see the lack of progress made by the drinks industry. Coca Cola’s lack of urgency is a disgrace putting profits before planet. Thanks to Bronwen Colquhoun and team at NMW, Ann Jones, Ben Borthwick, David Drake, David Alston, Ffion Rhys, Cathy Lomax and Ruth Gooding.
