Official Feedback from In-Person & Virtual Events

Feedback from In-Person Events:

"In Andy Hughes’ hands a discarded water bottle can have the visual impact of a Dale Chihuly glasswork. In a sense, the knowledge that these pieces have been abandoned lends them a mystique and melancholy that objects of desire could only dream of having. Andy Hughes is a singular voice showing us something uncomfortable yet sweetened by the beauty of the image. This is something most great artists aspire to and Andy is, in my view, well on the way to carving an important place for himself in the top rank of photographers." - Tim Smit, The Eden Project Co-Founder

"Andy Hughes has been on the beach photographing marine plastic for thirty years. His passion and knowledge of plastic and the wider issues around consumption and sustainability along with his striking images that are dauntingly beautiful ensure he is a great speaker. Andy never shies away from the awkward questions and issues. I’ve shared platforms with Andy and known him as a close friend and campaigning partner since 1991. Be prepared to be challenged..." Chris Hines, Former Sustainability Director Of The Eden Project

"Andy was brilliant in our IPA Effweek Event, he shared some perspectives on sustainability which provided a solid background information for our event." - Jing, The IPM
