The album is good to have a general idea about the author, his work and his workshop (nice introduction, and interview with Edward Burtynsky - that's what I've missed from the exibitions) but if you haven't seen full-size prints before, do not buy this book - otherwise it might spoil your opinion about one of the best photographers ever...
I brought this book for the contextual information that it holds and I was not disappointed. It is important when studying an artists work to read what is written about it as well as viewing the images. The book contains many high quality colour images of Burtynskys work and also a large amount of written material that is well worth the read.
An excellent addition to my library.
Burtynsky's recent photographs have been about peak oil, the urbanization of China and rock quarry mining. The photographs are an interesting balance of attraction and repulsion. The colors and tonal ranges and sheer beauty of his work attract a closer look leading to the realization that the scene has been caused by humans "disrupting the landscape in pursuit of progress". This book is a good example of how reproductions can be limiting to fine art. The book feels muted compared to Burtynsky's prints. Half of what attracts me to his work is the precise craftsmanship and fine detail.

Absolutely incredible views of man made changes to the planet earth. The interior industrial shots are my favorite, followed by the dump, mining and then the quarry pictures. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Karen
