About

Edward Burtynsky (b. 1955) is Canada's most successful photographer. A noted filmmaker, entrepreneur and environmental advocate, Burtynsky is first known internationally for his large scale images documenting the process and consequences of using the earth's natural resources. His images, which at times approach abstraction, present a bizarre tension between beauty and desecration. Many works, and this is an exceptional example, show unbelievable aerial views and are presented with a level of detail normally impossible for the human eye to comprehend. Burtynsky's series of quarries taken in Vermont in the early 1990's were the images that established his career. These images of cracked, fragmented and abandoned terrains looked not dissimilar to a Riopelle painting realized in rich whites, grays with stabs of vibrant greens. While the image documents the environmental exploitation, the overall work has an incredible form and rich palette and texture. This work has been published in countless periodicals and appears in the Steidl book on Burtynsky. His work can be found in the permanent collection of countless museums including the National Gallery of Canada, the Guggenheim, TATE Modern (London) and MoMA to mention a few. "Rock of Ages #25, Abandoned Section, Adam-Pirie Quarry, Barre, Vermont 1991" Additional images available on request. Questions about this piece? Contact us.
