Edward Burtynksy’s Environmental Photography

Writer, filmmaker, and nature photographer Edward Burtynksy focuses on the interdependence of nature and industry, particularly the ways in which industrial and human processes alter the landscape of the earth. His latest series of photographs document observations on the changing nature the environment and the long-lasting effects of human activity. The work is very informed by science but still maintains an artistic element. The photographs are visually striking and really show the dynamic nature of land and the expansiveness of human processes over the earth, particularly in exotic areas that are touched by global warming, mining, and consumerism. Each photograph highlights the delicate balance between nature and human and shows how dependent we are on the Earth’s resources.
