Edward Burtynsky

Manufactured Landscapes

Photographs by Edward Burtynsky. With Essays by Lori Pauli, Mark Haworth-Booth, Kenneth Baker and an Interview by Michael Torosian.

Manufactured Landscapes was published in conjunction with Edward Burtynsky's career retrospective organized by the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. From the Railcutting series of 1985 through the most recent photographs of California's oil fields, this fully illustrated catalog covers the entire career of Edward Burtynsky. Characterizing his work as "landscape changed in the pursuit of progress," Burtynsky has journeyed to various sites to witness the extraction of resources, the reclamation of materials and the effects of industry. Manufactured Landscapes documents the many facets of nature as it is transformed through human industry. His various series, including rock quarries, industrial tailings and shipbreaking yards, strike an intricate balance between a somber reportage and a powerfully seductive aesthetic.
