Over the past twenty-five years, the internationally renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky has been an explorer of unfamiliar places where human activity has reshaped the surface of the land. His astonishing large-scale color photographs of the landscapes of mining, quarrying, railcutting, recycling, oil refining, and shipbreaking uncover a stark, almost sublime beauty in the residue of industrial "progress." The implicit social and environmental upheavals that underlie these images make them powerful emblems of our times. This handsome catalogue of the first major retrospective of Burtynsky's work features essays by Lori Pauli, Kenneth Baker, and Mark Haworth-Booth, as well as a wide-ranging interview with the artist by Michael Torosian. The book includes sixty-four color plates.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Edward Burtynsky's striking images serve as wordless indictments of the industrial societies that create his subject matter--the increasingly ravaged earth. . . . Manufactured Landscapes, a career-spanning collection of his work, shows just how deep the rift is between the natural and the artificial."--Outside
"A book of magnificent work. . . . Burtynsky brings the rigor and grandiosity of architectural photography to his subject matter, an in-depth exploration of those vistas where the human touch--the human will and desire to produce goods--has had an undeniable impact. . . . Burtynsky has photographed these places with care and mesmerizing exactitude, a blend of the objectivity of the Bechers and the lyricism of Elger Esser, but with a decidedly North American palate. Definitely one of the best books of the year."--Photoeye
Selected as one of the Best Photography Books of 2003 by photo-eye Books
