Message in a Bottle

The Mariners' Museum in Newport News has a good photo show coming featuring the works of Andy Hughes and a personal favorite of mine Chris Jordan. I hear on the radio this morning that Andy Hughes is speaking there some time, but i haven't found any info on that lately. Both photographers explore consumerism and the environment and where those two worlds meet. The show opens May 30th and goes until January. I have a fantasy photo exhibit in my head and Chris Jordan would definitely be a part of that.
