To document this phenomenon as faithfully as possible, not a single piece of plastic in any of these photographs was moved, placed, manipulated, arranged, or altered in any way.

Chris Jordan discusses his work on Midway Atoll in a New York Review podcast. To see more of his photographs from Midway, readers can visit chrisjordan.com. A collection of his large-scale conceptual photographs, Running the Numbers: An American Self-Portrait, was published earlier this year by Prestel.
