Location:Seattle, WA, United States
Chris Jordan’s work explores contemporary mass culture from a variety of photographic and conceptual perspectives. Edge-walking the lines between beauty and horror, abstraction and representation, the near and the far, the visible and the invisible, his images depict viscerally the enormity and power of humanity’s collective will. Jordan’s works are exhibited and published worldwide.
