“Chris Jordan is an internationally acclaimed artist and cultural activist based in Seattle. His work explores contemporary mass culture from a variety of photographic and conceptual perspectives, connecting the viewer viscerally to the enormity and power of humanity’s collective will. Edge-walking the lines between art and activism, beauty and horror, abstraction and representation, the near and the far, the visible and the invisible, his work asks us to consider our own multi-layered roles in becoming more conscious stewards of our complex and embattled world. Jordan’s works are exhibited and published worldwide.”

I seleted to feature Chris Jordan’s work today because of the way he has creativly approached a sensitive situation, the katrina hurricane aftermath. His style is simliar to ‘urban decay’ but so incredibly detailed that I myself was compelled to continuosly look further and further through his vast collection of photographs on the subject and becme inspired myself. I am also interested in the broken down and abandoned style of photography and Chris is a wonderul example of this ‘Urban’ photography and I feel that many could learn and become inspired from his works as I have.
