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".
