Edward Burtynsky by Edward Burtynsky

Book Description

Over a twenty-five year career exploring the landscape as transformed by industry, this 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 Canada's 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 Bibliotheque nationale in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Ed Burtynsky's numerous distinctions include the TED Prize, The Outreach award at the Rencontres dArles, and Canada's highest civil honour: Officer of the Order of Canada. In 2005, Steidl published his celebrated book "China".

Books By Author Edward Burtynsky

Stormbelt by Edward Burtynsky Stormbelt, Hardback (December 2013)

'The images in this book ask that we follow the quiet journey of Robert Leslie and his camera through a land where the notion of the unstoppable economy, a land of plenty, the 'American dream', is brought into question. Is this moment in history a major setback or is this the beginning of the inevitable decline of an empire - ' Edward Burtynsky

Edward Burtynsky by Edward Burtynsky Edward Burtynsky, Hardback (September 2009)

In 1997 I had what I refer to as my oil epiphany. It occurred to me that the vast, human-altered landscapes that I pursued and photographed for over twenty years were only made possible by the discovery of oil and the mechanical advantage of the internal combustion engine. It was then that I began the oil project.

Burtynsky, China by Edward Burtynsky Burtynsky, China, Hardback (November 2005)

Explores the intricate link between industry and nature, combining the raw elements of mining, quarrying, shipping, oil production and recycling into eloquent, highly expressive visions that find beauty and humanity in the most unlikely of places. These images are metaphors for the dilemma of our modern existence.

Manufactured Landscapes by Edward Burtynsky Manufactured Landscapes, Hardback (March 2003)

A collection of the photographs of Edward Burtynsky, explorer of unfamiliar places where human activity has reshaped the surface of the land. There are accompanying essays by Lori Pauli, Kenneth Baker and Mark Haworth-Booth, as well as an interview with the artist by Michael Torosian.
