For three years, Seattle photographer Chris Jordan has immersed himself in a stunning environmental tragedy on fabled Midway Island in the heart of the Pacific: the starvation of thousands of albatrosses who mistake our floating plastic trash for food. As part of Sightline Institute’s 20th-anniversary speaker series, Jordan shares his Midway photos, recounting his harrowing and redemptive journey into horror, beauty, grief, love, and—ultimately—healing. Presented by Sightline Institute.
