Edward Burtynsky: Raw Elements

Edward Burtynsky’s remarkable photographic depictions of global industrial landscapes have won him international acclaim and made him on of Canada’s most respected photographers. His work is included in over fifty museums and galleries worldwide.

The theme of Burtynsky’s work is landscape altered by industry and he cites his early exposure to the General Motors plant in his hometown as having steered the development of his photographic work. His subjects include the raw elements of mining, quarrying, manufacturing, shipping and oil production, and yet the results show that beauty can be found even in these most unlikely of places.
