    Ken Weingart interviews Edward Burtynsky | LENSCRATCH

    Edward Burtynsky is a legendary Canadian fine art photographer who specializes in chronicling the extraction and destruction of the earth and it’s minerals, mines and more. His images bring a painterly beauty to the banal. A photographer and master printer for over forty years, Burtynsky has pioneered a unique way of looking at the planet. I had the opportunity to speak with the artist at the Von Lintel Gallery in Los Angeles.

    Edward Burtynsky – Interview Part Two – Luminous Landscape

    Continuing my interview with Ed Burtynsky, we talk about every photographer’s favorite subject, cameras. Ed shares with us his evolution of camera systems from 4×5 and 8×10 film to the Hasselblad 100 mega-pixel digital camera. Much of Ed’s work is shot from high altitude, and he has a few stories about how that is accomplished. You’ll also hear why during the film days Ed decided to shoot his work with color negative film. He shares his evolution of color printing and how he went from a hybrid color workflow to his eventual full digital workflow.

    Edward Burtynsky – Interview Part One – Luminous Landscape

    Edward is a true photographer because for him taking the photo is one part, but making the print is the second and the most important part.  His prints are large, very large.  Because of this, he has had to use cameras that would allow him to print big.  He’s worked with 8×10 cameras and, as of lately, the Hasselblad H6D 100.

    At that time, Nigeria was one of many possible destinations. “It’s a tough one in terms of danger,” Baichwal said about the delta. “I’m not sure how we are going to get in there.” But in the coming months Burtynsky grew more interested in the country. One of his collectors had urged him to do a book on Africa, and after a visit to Kenya he agreed, believing that there would be overlap between the projects. Across the continent, he saw an epic story of industrialization and economic colonialism, hope and environmental degradation. Documenting it, he expected, would take many years. “The growth figures for Africa are staggering—frightening,” he said. “It’s the next big global play.”

    Toronto-based photographer Edward Burtynsky is known for his large-scale photos documenting the impact of our civilization on the natural landscape. Water, his new project, puts in perspective this natural element and the role it plays for humanity. Covering 10 countries over a five year period, the images tell stories of the “way we shape water and water shapes us.”

    The film was shot in 5K high-definition video, to capture the details in his aerial views and landscapes: a ritual swim by worshippers in India’s Ganges River, an enormous dam in China, leather tanneries pumping water in Bangladesh, a suburban development sprawling across former desert in Arizona, dryland farming in Spain.

    Edward Burtynsky: I have no idea what else I would do. Creating ideas and objects, and being involved in art making, whether it’s in the form of photography, or something else is part of my being. The creative urge feels as if it’s in my DNA. If I’m not creating something, then I feel as if I’m having a slow death

    The subject of Oil is near and dear to Mr. Burtsynsky, as revealred in an article in the Arts Journal. He has an amazing ability to combine significant documentary work with beautiful imagery, that lures the viewer in for a closer look, only to realize he’s telling us something profound. His images taken in Australia are as beautiful as they are disturbing.

  • Edward Burtynsky: Economies of Scale – PDN

    Whether photographing a shoe factory in China, a rock quarry in Portugal or a copper mine in Chile, Edward Burtynsky creates images that use scale to consider the magnitude of human industry and its impact on the landscape. “To me, what’s interesting as art is to begin to define that theater of industry that is almost beyond our imagination,” Burtynsky says.

    Friday night I rented this documentary and watched it at home. My wife loved it, felt it had an important message about man’s impact on the environment, and was really taken by Edward Burtynsky’s photographs. I felt differently: if I ever wanted to make photography seem boring to a bunch of students, to discourage them from getting into the field, this is the film I would show them

  • China, by Edward Burtynsky

    From Lens Culture: Canadian photogapher Edward Burtynsky worked through diplomatic channels to gain access to photograph many sites undergoing enormous change. With his large format camera, over the course of three years, Burtysnky has captured the vast scale and minute details of monumental transformations of a society. He documents today’s “factories for the world”; the dumping grounds for the hand-recycling of the world’s e-waste; the unprecedented migrations of millions of humans toward brand new urban environments; and the ecological footprint of Three Gorges Dam, the largest dam on the planet that forced the relocation and threatened the livelihoods of more than 1.13 million people.
