“Scientific paper, after scientific paper that I read all seem to present the simple statement – that our oceans are dying and we are killing them. The oceans are the life force that keeps our planet alive – yet it has been predicted that we will have wiped out all the life in the oceans by 2049.  This is within my lifetime – and this is just one of those things which keeps me awake at night.  I wonder: Do we have a plan B?  What shall we humans do, once we fish the last fish?” Georgia Laughton

In February 2011, Georgia went to Taiji Japan for a month to photograph the annual 6 month-long dolphin slaughters.  Planning to return in September 2011, the day prior to her arrival back in Kii Katsurra, a typhoon struck this area – with a death tally of more than one hundred people. With the town in crisis, a plan B for her time in Japan was launched – and time was spent in Tokyo exploring and photographing the fish market there.

Do we have a plan B? is graphic and confronting images of Georgia’s exploration of fish markets in during her visits to Japan – and she poses the question: Do we have a plan B for when we kill the ocean?

Do we have a Plan B? is showing at one hundredth gallery between 26 October and 6 November.

Opening night October 27, 6:30pm

one hundredth gallery is located at 49 Porter Street Prahran (between greville and commercial) and is open Wednesday – Friday 11-7  and  Saturday – Sunday 12-5.
