Detail From "Tuna," 2009

The fish keep coming in this detail of an artwork depicting 20,500 tuna, the amount fished from the world's oceans every 15 minutes, according to artist Chris Jordan.

To make his images, artist Chris Jordan uses photo-compositing software to combine individual photographs or renderings of an object--like the watercolor tunas above--until he has enough for the statistic being shown, and then he prints them on tall panels.
