A Different Look at Numbers

A Different Look at Numbers

Originally uploaded by rjheyden

Chris Jordan is a photographer with a unique eye for looking at
quantities. He takes photographs of massive quantities of consumables
in order to provide context and a new understanding. For instance,
what do 106,000 aluminum (30 seconds of can consumption in the U.S.)
cans look like?

Statistics can feel abstract and impersonal. But somehow when you see
3.6 million SUVs (sales in one year in this country) all together, it
gives you a real sense of the impact.
