Trash for Dinner?

A photo by Chris Jordan

As I was sitting here, I was trying to think about looking up some photographers. So I just started putting in various words in Google. Organic, Recycle, then Trash Photographers. Yeah odd words to pick, but oh well. I then found Chris Jordan referenced on a different blog. In one of his galleries he has one dedicated to

“photographs of albatross chicks from September, 2009, on Midway Atoll, a tiny stretch of sand and coral near the middle of the North Pacific. The nesting babies are fed bellies-full of plastic by their parents, who soar out over the vast polluted ocean collecting what looks to them like food to bring back to their young. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking. (Chris Jordan).”

These pictures really bring the trash epidemic to a front. What do you think about it?
