Book Description

10 Sep 2007
Over a twenty-five year career exploring the landscape as transformed by industry, the celebrated Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky has accumulated a body of work on large-scale quarries around the world. Including Canada, Italy, China, Spain, Portugal, India and America these thought-provoking studies of sites that are created as we dig into the earth for material in order to build our cities, urge us to consider how we as viewers are simultaneously attracted yet repulsed by these landscapes somewhere a building is created while a landscape is destroyed. Edward Burtynsky, is one of Canadas most respected photographers. His remarkable photographic depictions of global industrial landscapes are included in the collections of 16 major museums around the world, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Bibliothèque nationale in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Ed Burtynskys numerous distinctions include the TED Prize, The Outreach award at the Rencontres dArles, and Canadas highest civil honour: Officer of the Order of Canada. In 2005 Steidl published his celebrated book China.

Burtynsky shoots stunning pictures. There are many great photographers (and photography books) out there but his pictures are full of color and precision and the subject matter is a wonder to behold.
