“Manufactured Landscapes: The Photographs of Edward Burtynsky
Through January 15, 2006 — Morris A. and Meyer Schapiro Wing, 5th Floor
The first major retrospective of the internationally renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky will bring together more than 60 works by the Toronto-born artist from both public and private collections.
Burtynsky, a modern-day counterpart to nineteenth-century landscape photographers, examines the intersection between land and technology, creating images of unorthodox beauty. His subjects include locations that have been changed by modern industrial activity such as mining, quarrying, rail cutting, recycling, and oil refining.”
