    DescriptionPaul Michael Henry’s latest project Shrimp Dance is a real labour of love. Four years ago, he discovered articles on the shrimp population which is being affected by the amount of anti-depressants washed up in coastal waters. What followed was years of research, in which he was in regular contact with Alex Ford from the University of Portsmouth’s Institute of Marine Sciences, who had published his findings in scientific journals and magazines. The implications for the eco-system are incredible. He describes the situation as ‘a wave of sadness’, that human depression can fuel such a crisis on such an epic scale
