Appetite for Destruction.

Chris Jordan traveled to the Midway Islands last year to document the Garbage Patch. He returned with these tragically shocking images of Albatross carcasses bursting with plastic waste. In an interview with SEED magazine, Chris said, "what’s happening on Midway is richly symbolic. To me, the birds look like us: filling themselves with something that is not nourishing, thinking that it is, and killing themselves in the process. Isn’t that what we’re all doing as a culture? Our spirits are dying from our overconsumption of toxic plastic crap. As I stood over these birds, I saw a mirror of myself."
