Ed Burtynsky is the photographer I'd most like to be. His photos are arresting and thought provoking. This is a good way into his work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A visually stunning depiction of the industrial landscape for the discerning reader 6 May 2013
By Nathan Everett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Being a landscape photographer and the owner of a large collection of photobooks, it takes more than super saturated imagery and cheap photoshop effects to impress me. This book however has managed to do exactly that. Everything from Edward Burtynsky's stunning depictions of the industrial landscape to the print quality and overall layout and presentation is perfect. If you are looking to add a high quality landscape photography book to your collection then look no further.

4.0 out of 5 stars akanwischer 7 April 2011
By victor lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Edward Burtynsky's approach to photography in Manufactured Landscapes is not to celebrate or damn his subject but rather depict it in a way that says, "This is what it is". By not stating what viewers "should" see in his work Burtynsky allows them to see things that, wouldn't be as available if the photograph was identified with a certain political agenda. Images of children knee deep in oil show how desperate we are for oil and the lengths we are going to get it. He is not pointing the finger at specific companies but rather stating that this is the problem we are all facing as a human race. The openness of his method leaves the responsibility to change with the viewer and actually motivates action.
Burtynsky's recent photographs have been about peak oil, the urbanization of China and rock quarry mining. The photographs are an interesting balance of attraction and repulsion. The colors and tonal ranges and sheer beauty of his work attract a closer look leading to the realization that the scene has been caused by humans "disrupting the landscape in pursuit of progress". This book is a good example of how reproductions can be limiting to fine art. The book feels muted compared to Burtynsky's prints. Half of what attracts me to his work is the precise craftsmanship and fine detail.
