A Bellyful of Plastic: Chris Jordan Photographs Pacific Birds

by New Dream   |   October 28, 2014


Photographer and New Dream friend Chris Jordan has a talent for catching civilization enacting its values. From his photos of post-Katrina New Orleans to his to-scale models of the plastic bottles that end up in the landfill at an alarming rate, he highlights uncomfortable truths. 

This has never been more true than his recent work documenting the plastic diet of birds in the Midway Atoll of the North Pacific. 

Take a look at the remains of baby birds fed plastic by their parents and see if you don't get a gut reaction of your own.

Also, check out the trailer for Jordan's film on this topic, Albatross.
