Biography

Over the past twenty-five years, Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky has been an explorer of unfamiliar places where industrial activity has reshaped the surface of the land. His surveys of the human-made terrain of quarrying, mining, railcutting, recycling, oil refining, and shipbreaking remind us that these incursions into the earth arise from perennial human needs and desires. With a disturbing and unexpected beauty, these photographs subvert our usual notions of the sublime in nature and lead us to new awareness of the landscape of our times.
