Photographer Chris Jordan (PopTech 2007, 2009) has returned to Midway, a remote island island in the middle of the Pacific, where he first began documenting, in 2009, the heart-wrenching scenes of countless birds killed by ingesting plastic. The project has since evolved into a feature film.
Following Chris Jordan’s expeditions to Midway and the lifecycle of the Albatross, “Midway” is more than just a documentary or a film about wildlife at risk. “Midway” brings us an opportunity for us to look at our world in close-up, to see how our lives are impacting the planet, and to find new approaches to moving forward.
Jordan’s crew includes Kris Krug, one of our official PopTech photographers, who is documenting the behind the scenes aspects of the trip.
