MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPES. The Photographs of Edward Burtynsky

Ottawa: National Gallery of Canada, 2003. First edition. Hardcover. Large 4to. Over the past twenty-five years, the Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky has been an explorer of unfamiliar places where industrial activity has reshaped the surface of the land. His surveys of the man-made terrain of quarrying, mining, railcutting, recycling, oil refining, and shipbreaking remind us that these incursions into the earth arise out of perennial human needs and desires. Burtynsky's photographs may show us things that are disturbing, but they also have about them an unexpected beauty, subverting our usual notions of the sublime in nature and leading us to a new awareness of the landscape of our times. This is Burtynsky's first major retrospective. With essays by Mark Haworth-Booth and Kenneth Baker and with an interview with Michael Torosian. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Item #14865
