What better way to hit home an important message than showing it to the world; to illustrate this point, I bring to you just a few of the thirty images from the Chris Jordan Midway collection. These disconcertingly powerful images document, according to, "the impact of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch on albatross chicks in the Midway Atoll."

At first glance, I truly believed these photographs were tampered with. It turns out, however, that the Chris Jordan Midway collection is completely faithful to the atrocious death these birds face. Not one item has been moved or placed. Visit his website for more insight into this issue. Stats for Decomposing Birdography Trending: Older & Chilly
