Edward Burtynsky

A fellow trail builder shared Edward Burtynsky’s work with me some time ago. It’s hard to forget some of his work, or his documentation of the spoils of other people’s work, and nature, or as he says:

Nature transformed through industry is a predominant theme in my work…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.
