Edward Burtynsky’s photographs deal with how nature is transformed through industry. His photos are often unsettling and beautiful at the same time. His work has been displayed in many museums and galleries worldwide and bring up a lot of questions concerning how far we are willing to go for “progress”. Here is an excerpt from his artist statement, taken from his website:
“These images are meant as metaphors to the dilemma of our modern existence; they search for a dialogue between attraction and repulsion, seduction and fear. We are drawn by desire – a chance at good living, yet we are consciously or unconsciously aware that the world is suffering for our success. Our dependence on nature to provide the materials for our consumption and our concern for the health of our planet sets us into an uneasy contradiction. For me, these images function as reflecting pools of our times.”
