Edward Burtynsky, photographer

Edward Burtynsky is one of Canada’s renowned living photographers. His imagery explores the intricate link between industry and nature, combining the elements of industrial activity upon our planet into eloquent, highly expressive visions that find beauty and humanity in the most unlikely of places. His work has drawn attention to the world’s environmental challenges through a completely original lens.

As New York Times art critic Jonathan Blaustein wrote: “Regardless of the photographs’ impact and the unpleasant realities they reveal, the pictures themselves are undeniably beautiful. Mr. Burtynsky is masterly in his use of aesthetics and in his manipulation of the viewer’s expectations.”
