Documenting our mass consumption, waste and garbage
What happens to the stuff we don’t want anymore? Chris Jordan depicts the refuse of the masses, how it is stored as well as the unfathomable quantity of waste humans produce today. In these large scale photographs we see mounds of worthless cellphones only years old, cars heaped, twisted and compressed into unrecognizable forms, or a sea of broken colorful glass shards. These images are beautiful and point out that our waste does not simply disappear, they have lives long after they are discarded.
