Got this one as a Christmas gift for someone, but I enjoyed it immensely. We got hooked on Burtynsky at the McMichael gallery, at a showing of his work that contrasted it with the natural landscapes of Ansel Adams. Burtynsky captures both the beauty and the horror of the altered landscapes.
It is a big big book. The compositions are powerful, the colors, and the details. You are realy in there, in the depth, the immensity of the quarries. For those who know quarries, it is a real travel. Amazing.
