Something to Reflect On

The other day my father sent me a link to a series of photographs by Seattle artist Chris Jordan. I found it so thought-provoking I had to share it here. The series is called Running the Numbers: An American Self Portrait. Check it out.

I saw this guy interviewed on The Colbert Report a while back. His work really is quite impressive, not just for its artistic value, but also for the point he's making with each piece.
