Chris Jordan - Running the Numbers II. This ongoing series looks at mass phenomena that occur on a global scale.

Chris Jordan - Running the Numbers II

Similarly to the first Running the Numbers series, each image portrays a specific quantity of something: the number of tuna fished from the world's oceans every fifteen minutes, for example. But this time the statistics are global in scale, rather than specifically American. Finding meaning in global mass phenomena can be difficult because the phenomena themselves are invisible, spread across the earth in millions of separate places. There is no Mount Everest of waste that we can make a pilgrimage to and behold the sobering aggregate of our discarded stuff, seeing and feeling it viscerally with our senses.

Instead, we are stuck with trying to comprehend the gravity of these phenomena through the anaesthetizing and emotionally barren language of statistics. Compounding this challenge is our sense of insignificance as individuals in a world of 6.7 billion people. ~cj. Website of artist photographer Eric Pillot. Dream me up. Tim Walker Photography.

Ecosystem of Excess, 2014 - Pinar Yoldas

Covering between 700000 and 15 million square kilometers, the site is a monument to plastic waste on a global scale. Referring to Kantian aesthetics, it is a truly ‘sublime’ kinetic sculpture built by all the nations around the Pacific Ocean through many years of mindless, unsustainable consumption. As environmental activist and discoverer of the Trash Vortex Captain Charles Moore boldly claims, ‘the ocean has turned into a plastic soup.’ From primordial soup to plastic soup, An Ecosystem of Excess asks a very simple question: ‘If life started today in our plastic debris filled oceans, what kinds of life forms would emerge out of this contemporary primordial ooze?’

The project introduces pelagic insects, marine reptilia, fish and birds endowed with organs to sense and metabolize plastics as a new Linnean order of post-human life forms.

Photojournalism — Brent Stirton. KIKA, CAMEROON, JULY 2010: Members of the Baka Pygmy tribe, the original forest dwellers of the Cameroon forests, Kika, Cameroon, June 9, 2010.

Photojournalism — Brent Stirton

The Baka have small logging concessions of their own in community forest areas but are plaughed by a lack of education, logging equipment, access to markets and an addiction to alcohol fostered by their Bantu neighbours who ruled them for many years and who often pay the Baka for labor in alcohol. Logging roads and subsequent small towns created by logging concessions are bringing man and infrastructure further into the forest of Cameroon than ever before, Kika, Cameroon, June 5, 2010. This is severely threatening the great forests of the Congo Basin, one of the last great Forest reserves in the world. The Congo Basin forests cover an area the combined size of France and South Africa. The forests of Cameroon form a large part of this basin. "Veramente" de Guido Guidi. Guido Guidi, Fosso Ghiaia, Ravenna, 1971 Traduction en espagnol On définit en général Guido Guidi (à la Fondation HCB jusqu’au 27 avril) comme un photographe de paysages : ce n’est pas faux, certes, mais ne vous attendez pas à voir là les collines toscanes, les ruines romaines, le pittoresque napolitain ou les plages ioniennes, ce n’est pas Luigi Ghirri.

"Veramente" de Guido Guidi

Guidi est un photographe de la périphérie urbaine, des espaces décrépits qui ne sont plus vraiment agricoles et pas encore industriels, de cet univers sans formes, sans essence, dont il fait ressortir, non l’absence de beauté, mais en tout cas la singularité. 500 Photographers.
