Photographer #142: Chris Jordan

Chris Jordan, 1963, USA, focuses on mass-consumption in his work. He has made a series of images called Running the Numbers. The images look normal at first, but one can zoom in and see that the pictures are made up of thousands of barbies or cigarette packs. (see website) Chris hopes to visualize the amount of goods we consume. In his series Midway: Message from the Gyre he has photographed Albatross chicks that have died because they were being fed waste caused by humans by their parents. Chris has not moved or added anything to the corpses. The following images come from Midway, Intolerable Beauty and In Katrina's Wake.
