He takes the guesswork out of visually quantifying quantity with his latest installation, Running the Numbers, which is touring the country through 2011. His latest book of photos features the visualization of 1,000,000 trees cut down every year; 9,000,000 American children without health insurance; 2,000,000 plastic bottles used every five minutes; 2,300,000 adults incarcerated in U.S. prisons.
