We've always taken the global supply chain for granted - a system that went largely unnoticed until the pandemic exposed its inner workings and near collapse. This series of photos reveals the sheer scale, splendor and inherent fragility of the infrastructure the supply chain - and all of us - depend on. Photographed during the much-publicized backlog of ships at the Port of Los Angeles in the fall of 2021, I capture the sheer scale, sophistication and inherent beauty (intentional and accidental) of global shipping.
