Five years in the making, Anthropocene presents powerful and poignant works by Edward Burtynsky mapping the impact of human intervention on planet Earth. Anthropocene is the artist's sixth Steidl monograph, which was released concurrently with his film documentary of the same title, a collaboration with filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier; in addition to two museum exhibitions, one at the Art Gallery of Ontario and the other at the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada. This book is available through the Robert Koch Gallery as a signed 1st edition.

Edward Burtynsky's works are held in the collections of over 60 major museums around the world, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Guggenheim Museum in New York; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid; and the National Gallery of Canada. Burtynsky is a recipient of the 2004 TED Prize honoring individuals who have shown they can positively impact life in a global context, as well as the ICP Infinity Award for Art (2008), the Rogers Best Documentary Film Award (2006), The Outreach Award at the Rencontres d'Arles (2004), and the Roloff Beny Book Award (2003). The National Gallery of Canada organized and toured in 2003 the first retrospective of Burtynsky's work, Manufactured Landscapes, which subsequently travelled to the The Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego; and the Cantor Center for Visual Arts, at Stanford University.
