Edward Burtynsky at C/O Berlin
“Like no other photographer before him, Edward Burtynsky has documented every element of the vast circulatory system that comprises the global oil industry. His large-format photographs reveal in vivid detail the connections between oil consumption, oil transport, and oil production, all the way to waste disposal and its ongoing effects on the landscape. In his photographic series, Burtynsky critically interrogates the pursuit of affluence as well as individual actions and their consequences.”
Burtynsky’s new show “Oil” opened at C/O Berlin, 26th July 2012, in precense of the artist. We were there and lucky to meet the artist.
At Newtopia he will show his series “Three Gorges Dam” (see more at ART)
