The Summer issue of Canadian Art just arrived and includes a feature (written by Daniel Baird) about recent projects of Toronto photographer Edward Burtynsky. Looking at Burtynsky’s oversized images of industrial landscapes, it’s difficult not to appreciate their sublime beauty while also being astounded by the impact humans have on the environment.
More about Burtynsky and his amazing work can be seen at his website and at the just-opened exhibition “Edward Burtynsky: The Landscape That We Change” at Kleinburg, Ontario’s McMichael Canadian Art Collection Gallery, which runs through September 29, 2013.
Burtynsky is one of my faves! Love his work.

De Ann, thanks.

That tire pile is unsettling.

I love Burtynsky’s work and am sad for the planet at the same time. Thanks for this post. Allan
Yes, his work is terrific. I share some of your sadness.
