By now you’re probably well versed in the sometimes shocking photography of Chris Jordan and his recent work from Midway where he photographed the insides of dead albatross. The result was shocking: carcasses, their stomachs filled with plastic debris. The images of these albatross have become the poster children for the anti-plastic movement.
The Midway Journey Project recently posted a video of Jordan inspecting the insides of an albatross. The results are horrific, but an excellent reminder of just what our dependence on single use plastic items is doing to the marine environment.
