He grew up in Norfolk, not far from the bustling, busy beaches of Great Yarmouth.
But Tim Nunn has spent much of his life since exploring the globe's remotest coastlines – by surfboard.
The 41-year-old, who grew up in Ormesby St Michael, has made a career as a photographer, visiting distant spots and capturing images of them on camera,
Despite frequently finding himself many miles from civilisation, he said he often encountered mounds of rubbish and debris littering the otherwise deserted locations.
By chronicling such scenes in his work, he hopes his photography will raise awareness of this issue and prompt ways to tackle it.
'I was going to all of these really remote places, miles from civilisation, and every year I'd go more and more remote and the amount of rubbish on beaches would grow,' he said. 'I go to places and find rubbish, plastic that has travelled miles to be there, dead seabirds wrapped in beer can holders, the vast amount of waste from the oil industry and more.
'I am hoping to inspire people to make a daily change in their lifestyle. We can all do this, for it's this unseen effect of rubbish in the sea which I want to point out to people of all ages before we choke our planet.'
