About Canadian photographer, Edward BURTYNSKY (*1955)
Edward BURTYNSKY is a Canadian artist who became known with large-format photographs of industrial landscapes. The beauty of his photographs is that they do not raise one-sided moral prejudices. The ugly part is that they show that we are all responsible for the environmental destruction caused by the extraction of raw materials.
