A few months ago we introduced you to the fascinating work of photographer and environmentalist Chris Jordan. Here his newest project entitled, “The Message from Gyre”, shot at Midway Atoll, a tiny stretch of sand and coral near the middle of the North Pacific. To portray the pollution in the waters of this area he photographed deteriorating albatross chicks who had died from eating toxic waste. The photos  illustrate the contents in their stomach without any exaggeration. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking.
