Surfers Against Sewage

Spencer Murphy


This is SAS’s core campaign protecting the health of recreational water users from sewage polluted water. Spencer did an amazing job of translating this prolific cause into captivating and very static statement imagery.

For me this brief was really exciting. It allowed me to really capture the essence of a great cause with my imagery. The idea that seweage and offshore developments are threatening to kill our waves is really scary. I wanted to create something, which really resonated, capturing a beauty and aesthetic, which is somehow marred by a more melancholy and thought provoking undertone.

Surfers Against Sewage is a charity that’s been close to my heart since I was a young boy discovering surfing for the first time. So when I got the call I was keen to help. The ‘Protect Our Waves’ campaign seeks to obtain 100,000 signatures for their petition, which they intend to personally deliver to 10 Downing Street next summer. To learn more about why the charity is of such importance and to sign the petition, go to:
