Photographer, Chris Jordan on Creative Mojo and Making a Difference with Your Art
Grab a coffee (or tea) and take-in another great re-watch from chasejarvisLIVE. This episode “Creative Mojo, Change Your Life, Make a Difference” features talented, photo-based artist Mr. Chris Jordan. Chris and Chase talk about finding a vision for your art and knowing when to leave your day job. Sound familiar?
“Jordan tells it like it is. He’s got gallery shows, museum gigs, speaking gigs, documentary films, and this guy moves the world to action – all from a humble, hardworking place.”, says Chase.
I’m thrilled to have been introduced to Chris Jordan through chasejarvisLIVE. I’m sure you will find his work shocking and breathtaking—it really makes you think. I like the idea that we can find more passion in life by correcting our behaviour. Chris’s imagery will make you take a hard took at life in America—and, see why it needs to change.

The MIDWAY media project is a powerful visual journey into the heart of an astonishingly symbolic environmental tragedy. On one of the remotest islands on our planet, tens of thousands of baby albatrosses lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic from the Pacific Garbage Patch.
Great art has meaning. Thank you Chris for creating this amazing artwork and for providing us with the “visuals that make us think beyond our everyday lives”.
