Author, lecturer and curator, William A. Ewing, talks to the celebrated photographer, Edward Burtynsky, about his working methods and the breathtaking imagery in his book 'Essential Elements'.
Edward Burtynsky has achieved global recognition for his spectacular, large-scale photographs which depict the impact of human activity upon urban and natural environments around the world:
‘Rarely do we have the opportunity to absorb the sheer scale of our impact on the earth… what we have is the ‘contemplative moment’ – images that require time and thought to truly absorb what it is we’re seeing’
‘While many of his images are beautiful to behold, a more clear-headed approach reveals a scarred and tortured landscape’
